I Choose Peace and Prosperity

August 27, 2008

I can’t help myself.  I’m spending part of my evening parked in front of the tube watching (not so much), but really listening to the Democratic National Convention.  Michelle Obama was warm and touching.  She felt real to me and made me happy that I plan to vote for her husband in November.  Hillary — what can I say — she’s a serious campaigner, she’s serious about the need for change.  She’s so dynamic, and she is so right.

My heart aches for our country.  We lag behind in the basics for too many of our residents.  With the greatest percentage of our resources flowing to Iraq (and I truly believe this was all about oil), we cannot meet bottom-rung human needs.  Shame on us for the past years.  So, it’s time to make up for losing sight of the dream.  I believe there’s a place for each of us in making it come true.

    Amen. Beautifully said.

    Do you know whose speech I really liked last night? Brian Schweitzer’s.

    There were several good bumper-sticker slogans throughout the night: Hillary’s “No how, No way, No McCain” among them.
