Today, we received a nice note from Katherine
Albrecht. She wrote:
“Thanks for organizing this, Bob! It promises to be the start of
something very good.
“One quick suggestion -- you may want to make sure people don't
misunderstand and think you are calling for a
‘Constitutional Convention.’ I know that's not at
all what you are doing, but people have short
attention spans when dealing with email, so
explicit clarification on this point might be
useful. Though it appears obvious, people need to
know that you are working to PRESERVE the
Constitution, not to change it.
I'm often guilty of just lightly skimming the mountain of email I receive
each day. To my embarrassment, when I first opened
your message, though I am very familiar with your
plan, even I briefly thought you were talking
about a Constitutional Convention. For a
nanosecond, I could barely restrain my horror!
(Yes, I can be very dense!)
Of course, what you are doing is fabulous, and I am behind you 100%.
Many blessings on your inspired efforts to get this runaway train back on
its tracks, and warmest wishes for much success in

conducted a Constitutional Convention in 1787
which resulted in the Constitution we (allegedly)
Continental Congress was called in 1774 so
that a limited number of representatives from
each of the 13 colonies could get together to
discuss the common Grievances they had against the
Government of their day, and to develop strategies
that could be employed to Redress those Grievances.
The Founders did not originally gather for
the purpose of declaring their independence,
although ultimately that was the course of action
they eventually settled upon.

is being called for corresponding reasons.
