    As a stay-at-home mom who feels like most of my time needs to be devoted to my children, I appreciate the opportunity to be involved, by signing petitions and forwarding e-mails when otherwise, I would not have the opportunity to be involved at all. Anyone who has signed as many petitions as I have, who has followed the results, knows that those petitions are delivered to legislators and decision makers and change results. It's very valuable that we can gather the opinions of so many, so quickly to help people all over the US and the world.
