Feeling alittle discouraged....

Today has been one of those days!!!
I have always tried to keep myself possative about what we are doing, but the past few days have been really rough ones for me.
Kim has been out for the past few days trying to get sponsors for the Columbiana County Fair and people have been down-right nasty!
Unfortunatly, getting donations and sponsors is what we have to do to keep going.
If for example every person that came to this blog would have just donated $1 then we would have almost $3000! Think about all of the advertising we could do with that!!
I do realize that we are NOT advertising puppies or selling something cute and cudly. Murder is not a sweet little cause that we are trying to promote. I know this..I know that people in general are scared of this topic. Believe me, I would rather not have to deal with this at all. But this is something that I HAVE to do.
Murder hit me right in the face when Mike was killed.
That day, my life changed forever.
I don't know what compels me to keep going with this, but something inside me makes me do this.
I really, truely believe that this what I am suppose to be doing.
Still though, it gets draining when people act so cold and sometimes even mean.
For those of you that don't know...Kim and I do NOT get paid to do this.
We do this because we both believe that it's important.
These victims have a right to be remembered and their families have the right to know what happened to them.
We invest our time, our gas, and alot of times our own money because we feel it's that important to raise awareness.
Not to mention the time we spend away from our families & friends.
I guess I just want any wood-be sponsors to think about that the next time you see one of us..
Don't bite our heads off. Try to understand that what we are doing is important.
We certianly aren't in it for the money!!
Take a step back and think for a second.. If someone you love was ever murdered and you had no idea what happened to them, wouldn't you want someone like me or Kim out there for you?????
Think about it.
Okay...I'm done whining now...
