Trevor,
You have come in for a lot of heat in the past weeks, however, I wanted to say a very sincere "Thank you" on behalf of thousands of people who are on these forums.

You stepped up and took responsibility to make this and other events happen, some of us were critical of some of your executive decisions. I am one of them.

The bottom line is, we were wrong, I was wrong, your willingness to work long hours and shoulder the burden of organisation has resulted in a day that will live for decades and perhaps centuries in political fund raising lore. It may well have changed the course of human affairs on this planet. So, my gift to you, and it's all I got, so you are just going to have to have it....is this poem from another freedom fighter from another age..

Good job there Trevor and team..

In the Arena

It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs,
comes up short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows the great enthusiasms,
the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end
the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails,
at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those
cold and timid souls
who neither know victory nor defeat.
-Theodore Roosevelt

I would give congrats to us all. A fundraiser such as ours is not the result of one person.

Sure a website helps, but all we really needed was this forum and a bunch of people willing to donate on the same day.

So, I thank Trevor, yourself, myself and everyone else.

*Pats self on back, gives self a handshake*

Derdy:
You are right, THANKS TO EVERYONE.
I just wanted to acknowledge Trevor as he had come in for the most beatings...
Everyone did a tremendous job, Trevor would be the first to know that.
Thanks.
Shaun.
