  1. Great Job, DBO.

    It is my humble opinion that there is a hero in all of us. Going to the defense of others is courageous and noteworthy.

    My great uncle, J.D. Burg, fought in the US Marine Corps during WWII in the Solomon Islands in the 5th Marine Division/Paratrooper. He took part in the battle of Guadalcanal and the invasion of Iwo Jima. He didn't see himself as a hero. He was awarded the Purple Heart, Silver Star and Gold Star for his heroism. He said that he did what any young man would have done in his shoes. I don't know if he's right about that, but that's how he felt. Taking time to remember selfless acts of heroism/defense of others is a wonderful tribute. Well done, Dogsbite. Well done.

  2. Colleen Lynn is my heroine. As a career prosecutor who is dedicated to justice and public safety, I was thrown into the legal battle in defending BSL. I learned exactly how dangerous pit bulls could be, and in my attempts to educate others, the pro-pit bull lobby were relentless in their attacks. Other pro-BSL advocates & I agreed that our cause would only really be sustainable if a real victim took up the banner to rally the nation. When I first traveled to Seattle & met Colleen, my hopes were not raised, but my wildest dreams never touched what she has achieved! I only wish Colleen's service to humanity in developing could simultaneously provide her the financial security she deserves. Thank You, Colleen!

  3. Agreed KoryNParker!

    Colleen is my hero. She takes on the pit bull community and they are every bit as unstable and dangerous as their dogs.
