Working Towards Tomorrow

I realized it when I was putting the event in my calendar. “Volunteer for Barack.”

In 2004 I was active politically as well. I canvassed and donated and helped out. I even ran a small (short-lived) local ‘zine. That was all done of a sense of loyalty to the party and dislike of a candidate. (I supported Kerry, I liked Edwards and Dean.)

This is different. I gave money, volunteered time, talked to people, knocked on doors. All this I am doing FOR a candidate.

This feeling of working towards something, of being for something, is amazing.

If you haven’t already, get out there and vote.
