i’m not going to be as polite as some of my favorite bloggers have been lately. i’m not going to simply state that i hope you will vote, without expressing my true hopes and intentions. because i do care who you vote for next tuesday. i hope that you will vote for barack obama.
there has been some really awful news regarding the behavior of mcpalin supporters at their rallies and i’ve been thinking a lot lately about fear and hate. it’s messy business. i refuse to be fearful about the outcome of this election or about anything that may happen after tuesday. if we’re bound by fear, we’re open to hate. i know i sound like a loony new age nutjob, but i really believe that is true. tomorrow begins another new day to live with a hopeful, open heart. another day to love the enemy. another day for the care bear stare, right bree?
i’m not throwing stones at you, mcpalin supporters. i just think you’re misguided and frightened. you don’t have to be. it’s ok. barack obama is a great man with great ideas and plans and he is going to bring us back together. take a deep breath, close your eyes and listen. just listen.
