A great note from Sherri Myers

January 16, 2014



I thank God for you. We need a voice and you have made that possible. You have empowered the powerless. Thanks for providing me the opportunity to speak on your show. I love the article. I love the bench picture.

When I was in my twenties I hung out with people who were in their 60s 70s and 80s. Old civil rights warriors. They inspired me and taught me to have fun in the process of fighting for justice.

I even hung out with Fred and Birdie Blossom. Fred was in his 80s. He was a union organizer for the IWW. The greatest union in the history of the world.

Fred and Birdie had a house in the mountains of Tennessee. On their frig they had plastered pictures of many radicals. After lunch they would tell people to gather up blankets and take them outside to sit on. They would say, “It’s time to plot the revolution”. Out we would go.

They inspired me to never give up.

Take care,


Note: I was blown away about Myers’ personal story. Whether you agree or disagree with her political stances, she is a Pensacola treasure.

    Thank God for Sherri Myers. She’s a voice of reason and common sense on many issues. Too bad that the genius’s in City Hall look upon her with disdain and contempt.

    Nice note Rick.

    Leave it to L Lard to bring in his or her intolerant views when speaking of a woman who appears to bring inclusion of everyone with her policies and viewpoints.
    Once again he shows the “wackos” exist equally on the left and the right.

    As always, my friend Sherri knows how to get her point across very successfully. Whether you agree with her or not and a lot of times we don’t agree, It has never interfered with my respect of her or our friendship. Yes, Sherri I do see the Jesus in you my friend! Barbara Mayall

    It is a honor to day, the Sherri is my friend for years. She and I have stood on many street corners promoting progress ideas and candidates. In this area, that is a major challenge since most of the local voters get their information for crazy preachers or right wing wacho’s.

    A Great Note from a GREAT Lady! I love Sheri and her undying quest for truth, justice and helping the “least and left out.” She is indeed a treasure that has no “hidden agenda” that provides her “profit or benefit.”
