A little reminder

I love this country. And I don't love it in spite of the conservative right wing front. I love it because of that. I love that different views and different experiences can be expressed, embraced or disregarded. I love that we are a melange of colors, religions and beliefs. I love that we stand up and behind what we feel is right. I love that as a nation we are empowered and we feel responsible for the success of the rest of the world. I love that we elected JFK and I love that we didn't really elect George W.


The one thing I don't understand is how he got re-elected.


That sentence just made me sigh. A deep soulful sigh. We were so strong and united and poised for magical wonderful togetherness. We stood tall and united and most of the world was behind us. It makes me sad to think that this is what came of 9/11. It makes me think of the "poem" I wrote in Early November the year of his re-election. So here it is ladies and gentleman, back for one night only -

November 3rd

A nation will be decided

We will move forward

November 3rd

We will fly our colors high

Rich, diverse and beautiful

November 3rd

We will stand together

As we did on Sept 12th - united in our firm resolve

November 3rd

We will stand focused on the goal of protection

Building a world that will be better for our children

November 3rd

We will be the best that we can be

Together, proud and strong

November 3rd

Is a day that will stand tall in the

History of America

November 3rd

All those who have stood apart

Will step up

November 3rd

The greatness that we can be, once were

Will be realized

November 3rd

The past will step to the podium

And accept defeat

November 3rd

All of America will accept their victory

We will be as we should be

November 3rd

Will be the day of light,

celebration and progress will guide our future

Or

on November 3rd

We will be proclaimed the country of idiots

And we will have crowned our king

How true, how true.
If only more people actually did step up. Hard to believe that he became president his first term, even harder to believe he was re-elected for his second term.
