Decisions are made by those who show up. --Aristotle

In an age of cellphones and social networking, where people are more likely to know your Twitter handle than your middle name, we've grown accustomed to an ever-weakening community. We've watched as the ties that bind us together wither away in the face of the day-to-day.

More and more, we've gotten used to expecting less and less of each other.

For years, Jeremy Hooper was the exception. Through his words and his deeds, he exemplified the kind of passionate courage that we look for in an advocate, the kind of selflessness and strength that we look for in a leader, and the kind of warmth and generosity that we look for in a friend.

The knife you least expect is the knife that hurts the most.

That's why we felt so betrayed when we learned he was not attending Netroots Nation this year. We heard the usual excuses, but we're tired of the usual excuses. Jeremy isn't the usual, and we demand more than the usual.

Jeremy, this is a time for American heroes--will you reach for the stars with us?

To:
Jeremy Hooper
Never before have we needed you like we need you now. Please attend Netroots Nation in San Jose. Our time is now. We are the change we've been waiting for.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I met Jeremy Hooper at my very first Netroots, and if he doesn't go this year, Tony Perkins will show up in his place.
