    I need some help getting a letter I have written all over the internet. This is a personal letter about my current situation with the health care in this country.

    I know you guys don't really know me around here, and I haven't given much back to the community. If you could help me with this I would forever be in your debt. My first thought was to make a facebook fan page to get the word out. But I'm not sure how to promote it.

    This letter is worthless to me if nobody reads it. I would submit it to digg but I know it will just get passed by.

    Just post in on a bunch of web 2.0 sites and ping the crap out of them. Go to health care forums and in your sig, leave a link.

    Same ole' same ole' standard efforts.

    Post in in the general section of CL too.

    That's it. Just to spread the word about mine and many other people with disabilities situation in the usa regarding health care.

    All that gets played on the news is the bs arguing back and forth with nothing ever agreed on.

    I'd post some basic info on it in the general services section of CL with a link to one of your web 2.0 sites with the letter. I'd also send it to every newspaper you can find on the internet.

    If you put your mind and some effort in anything you can make your cause go public and get the attention..... start a debate on CL in the community section, local news add your link to face book. You will find people with the same passion also people who oppose it.

    Depending on how it's written, I would try submitting it (or a form of it) to
    Code:
    americanchronicle.com
    If you can write it so that it's framed sort of in the way the TV show 60 Minutes frames their stories, where it's a story about a big issue but told from the perspective of how it affects a single person or group, basically an issue story from a human perspective, then you can probably get a little attention from publishing through the site I mentioned.

    They actually have a network of Geo news sites where the story would end up running if accepted, and their stuff gets picked up by Google News and so on, I've actually done pretty well submitting there in the past, though I haven't used them in a while now, but the key when I did was to submit a decent story that's well written.

    Hope that helps and good luck!

    I'll edit it for you... I kick ass when it comes to that sort of thing... not looking for any money or anything in exchange... just offering to do a fellow human a favor.
