Why? Becuase not everyone who reenacts is a member of this forum. Some people actually go out and do instead of talking about doing Don't be offended - some people on here aren't going, some people who are aren't doing anything special, and others probably just want to have the moment to themselves. Don't come on here and berate people for not piping in - its a free forum. And you'll never hear me complain about the lack of media coverage in reenacting (quite the opposite actually)....

"But our opportunity to learn and grow, to communicate the richness of the lives that have gone before us, that does not change. We do not outgrow it. It does not tatter and fall apart in our hands..." -Mrs. Terre Lawson, 2010
