Had Enough?

November 4, 2008 at 2:15 am 1 comment

Enough of the current administration?  Enough of the fear-mongering?  Enough of the self-centered direction our nation has been heading in the world?  Enough denial of people in need?

Then, please, please, please, make sure you vote tomorrow!!  

If you are in California, I urge you to vote No on Prop 8, which bans gay marriage — a “no” vote means you believe in equal rights for all under the law and you are speaking up for justice in a culture of fear.  If you are in the United States, I urge you to vote Obama — then continue to press him to follow through with his verbal commitments to better education, health care, and economic stability for those who need it most, and to a collaborative approach to international relations.

We can make changes.  It is rarely easy, or immediate.  It takes many voices, people working together.  It takes a deeper vision.  It takes making mistakes and correcting them.  It takes believing in something bigger than ourselves.  It takes relentless effort.  But it can be done.

Let’s start a new chapter tomorrow. Let’s get out there and vote.

    VOTED!
    Happy!
    Hopeful.
    Chose hope over fear.
    not about parties, not about race, just about the need for a new direction.
