We Creative Minority Reporters, We happy Creative Minority Reporters are thankful for the votes we received for the Best New Blog Award. This great award is clearly a mandate for change. And the change is hope.

The light of hope has been carried all year out of the caves of the darkness of despair and finally now we march under the banner of hope and into the fields of change.

We are the change we’ve been waiting for.

Our hope is to change everything without actually naming one thing we aim to change. I hope we can pull it off.

We have kept at bay the darkness of other fledgling bloggers and sought to redeem the blogosphere with a hopeful message of change. You have joined us Creative Minority Reporters on our quest to one day lead the blogosphere away from the tabernacle hiding, Fr. Richard McBrien loving, free-choice cafeteria Catholics.

Thank you again. Thank you for your mandate for change. Let’s hope we can change things.
