I believe

Sunday, January 27, 2008

From someone who is struggling with the idea of returning to school simply because I may not be able to afford it, who's seen my aging father struggle to get affordable medical care because he's self-employed, whose mother and step-father don't have the support or compensation they deserve as educators, whose animosity and disdain for a government I once hoped to work for has grown to the point of apathy, I say: YES WE CAN! I believe in change, in the idea that I can once again believe in my government, that I can trust my president to make the choices that will be to the ultimate benefit of the people who deserve it and lack it the most. I believe in change. I believe in Barack Obama, and I'm - once again - hopeful for the future!

I've been reading your blog all afternoon, starting with the present and backtracking your life to January. I finally reached the part where you said "I believe." Let me tell you: THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. Hallelujah!
I'm so glad you favor Obama. What a disappointment it would have been to find out, after I got to know you [sort of] that being from a Red state, you were cheering for McSame.
Best wishes to you across the pond, from Atlanta, Georgia [maybe a BLUE state come November??]
