Dale really makes a good point when he refers to the difficulty of finding a really good place for survivors to meet. I have had the same experience in setting up a one-day workshop for Mike Lew here in the UK in January 2009. There are so many factors to consider, and I couldn't believe how many places I rejected because I decided they just wouldn't feel safe and welcoming. The venue I finally opted for is perfect, but man, it sure did take some time to find it.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
