Thanks for the comment.
It would be of immense value if each one of us take time and interest and
come up with creative ways to use Internet to make T/theosophy available to
every man, woman, and child and hope it will affect them in a way that will
make the world we all live in is better. Each one of us is very important
and all it would take is a couple of innovative ideas that can affect the
world. Let us all try.
