I had to park pretty far away...but that was okay...I walked to the Board of Elections. Along the way someone had written messeges with Chalk on the Sidewalk..."Vote for Change"..."Almost there"...."MLK walked...keep walking" "O"....So 8 Blocks later there I was....and there was a line, but not as bad as yesterday. And the people were all so nice...many smiling...and sharing of gum and crackers, and water and snacks were handed out by the Obama people and Democratic supporters.....they were not handing out literature, just food and support..I stood most of the time with Willy , 79 and an Obama Volunteer, loved talking to him....His eyes were moist...Again people had stories...lost jobs, and health and relatives in Iraq.
The Supporters that were there handing out the love were from Georgia, NY and Chicago..." we are all neighbors now" said a nice fellow from Georgia.The Canadians CTV were there filming and "watching"....There was no McCain supporters or Repug Supporters there at all....I met judges and reps and City Councilmen. Once inside the lines wove through the Building, it was orderly and people were very appreciative of this Moment in History, and people were there with babies and small children........I voted, and photographed all of it. AND about my Registration problems...ALL resolved, and my little white Laminated Card was sure enough looked at and examined and my ID, and there were NO Problems, so all those trips to Downtown to fix the Registration have finally worked...( I have this beautiful card, white, laminated and it says Elector on it...and I don't feel Invisible anymore, I voted).And I came outside and It was Thundering and the rains poured down and I walked a mile back to my car ....Singing in the Rain..Singing for Change...
Thank you to all who let me vent and stress about my Registration Problems.....I am very grateful for all of your support.
This is the Obama Video that I saw when I got home from Voting....it says it ALL.....What WE have been through...
