The first day

The first day of the Bloggers Against Torture blogroll is coming to a close for me, and I'm delighted with the results. It's wonderful to 'meet' all of these new bloggers around the world who are ready and willing to take a stand against torture. Today I read Lasting News' torture archive (I would encourage you all to take a look at it), and I was struck by how many of you there are out there tirelessly writing, talking, and agitating about this issue. Apart from promoting Torture Awareness Month, I hope that this blogroll can bring people together to share resources, encourage one another, and remind us all of our common goals.

Meade's Maxim, has a wonderful quote on his blog, from which it gets its name. It goes "A small group of committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has." They are words to live by.
