My mother once asked me how she raised a Democrat when she and my father are both devout Republicans. I smiled and said, “Because I had a very loving mother who taught me to be fair and to care enough to want the best for all people.”
This election season has been simply amazing and will be even more so soon enough. I had the opportunity to vote for a woman running for President of the United States. Which is something I’ve always wanted to do. Now that I have, I’m ready to vote Obama into office.
Listening to his speech last night had me in tears. Which isn’t surprising since I’ve been a blubbering mess the entire week while watching the DNC. I’m not usually a crier, but watching political history in the making and losing my Dr Pepper Lip Smacker Lip Gloss all in the same week can be quite emotional. It’s important to have glossy lips while pumping a fist in the air and chanting “that’s not change, that’s more of the same” repeatedly at the TV.
