Net Neutrality -- Write to the FCC TODAY

The Internet remains crucial for spreading 9-11 awareness. So I am sending along this appeal from

Dear Friend,

A few years ago, complications from chemotherapy left me visually handicapped. I now depend on the Internet for access to the world outside of Minneapolis, where I live. I just wrote the FCC that without Net Neutrality, phone and cable companies could determine my fate online.

I wrote the FCC because it's weighing a decision that could hand over control of the Internet to big companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.

Please write the FCC, too. It needs to hear from you — in your own words — why these corporate gatekeepers can't take over our Internet.

Here's what I wrote:

"My unfettered access to the Internet is my access to the world; I need it for business, communication, shopping and entertainment... Without vital Net Neutrality protections, companies like Verizon and Comcast have a commercial incentive to muzzle my voice online. These companies should not have the power to determine my fate on the Internet."

Tell the FCC your own story about Net Neutrality. Go here now to submit it — the comment period ends Thursday.
