Dear e-Buddy,

Nearly a century ago, the author E.M. Forster told us, "Only connect."

After September 11th, all of us are seeking ways to do just that. We want to feel closer to our family, our friends and neighbors, our co-workers. And, we want to make new friends.

At e-Buddies, we have the privilege of creating friendships between two people who otherwise may never have gotten to know each other. We are connecting those with disabilities and those without them. In doing this, I know we are building a better world.

Thank you for being one of those connections.
