    What a wonderful recap. Thank you.

    I am inspired by the dedication of the volunteers. Their passion resonates from the screen and I am sure they are quite effective in their positions…just from the short clips that were viewed here.

    The blogger roundtable made me cry…I was there on Ustream and it was like watching a “Blog Concert”. I hope that some parent bloggers are included in the future…to mix up the perspective a bit.

    Great post.

    I also enjoyed followng JDRF’s Government Day(s) tweets by my friend Hallie of The Princess and The Pump blog. Really great video! Thanks for the recap, and of course thank you for being there and advocating for all those with type 1 diabetes.

    Allison, This video is terrific. Thank you so very much for attending JDRF government day (days!) and for being such a super advocate on behalf of our loved ones living with diabetes. As the mother of four and grandmother of eight, I was not all that excited about social networking. Boy, have I changed my mind. You go girl!

    You put together an absolutely fantastic video that certainly highlighted the scope of the weekend beautifully. As a grandmother, the whole DOC is a new thing for me and I never realized how important it was to so many people. As you probably know, Scott and Kerri set me up so that I can start blogging! ( I have posted 1 so far!!) What a great example you are!! Thank you so much!
