A Change of Seasons

I have walked for nearly 10 hours straight. Mostly uphill. My feet are blistered. My face is sunburned. My lips are chapped. I will certainly have a bladder infection after a gallon of water and no bathroom in sight.
I have been cussed at and called foul names. Threatened and intimidated. Chased by pitbulls and loved on by stray cats. I have had deep conversations with half naked men. I have sat in homes where most people would not even consider knocking on the door. I have heard stories of despair told with eyes full of hope. I have held a sick baby closely so his mother could have a voice.
If I swayed just one person today (or in the past few months), if I got just one person to the polls, if I gave one person a feeling of hope....then it has all been worth it.

  4. All of your hard work paid off and even though I didn't vote for him after last night seeing so many people who believed in him I am beginning to feel that he may be a good president.

  6. I hope you know it was worth it. You got me involved, well as much as I could be with my big pregnant butt and sore boobs. I've never voted before yesterday and you helped empower me. You are an awsome person honey, always remember that!

Play nice in the sand box or I'll smack you in the face with a shovel.
