There’s Power in Numbers? Who said it?

I’d like to start off by saying that this post is a little bit of a ramble.  Having said that, the original intent for this post was to  highlight the gallery section of this site because 1) we want to remind people of the invitation to participate, and 2) because we believe there’s power in numbers and the energy of momentum.

As I began thinking of what to say, I started to wonder … where did the phrase “there’s power in numbers” come from? I admit I got a little off task when I went out onto the “Interwebs” to research the answer. It turns out there are a lot of places using the term but nothing definitive. I did, however, find this little gem:  “This is a very powerful statement. Fluoride is in your toothpaste calcifying your pineal gland so you don’t understand how powerful that statement is.”  Well, I’m going to give that one a single eyebrow raise and move on.

Interestingly enough, Martin Luther King, Jr. used it in one of his lesser known speeches. “Never in the history of this nation have so many people been arrested, for the cause of freedom and human dignity,” King said. “You know there are approximately 2,500 people in jail right now. Now let me say this. The thing that we are challenged to do is to keep this movement moving. There is power in unity and there is power in numbers.”  I think these merit a look-see.

So, yes, I digress … back to power in numbers. It can be powerful in a positive way and powerful in a negative way. In our way, it’s positive and we love adding to our numbers by having more people participate by joining in the fun of our gallery.  So this is my not-so-shameful plug…COME PLAY AND LEND YOUR LIGHT!
