Dear Fellow ATSers:
I have many people in my family who are Republican, many who are unaffiliated like me, or Democrat.
I love all of them.
What I want most of all now, is to take this deep breath, take a moment to be grateful for the improvement in my little boy's futures (Obamacare has
a direct, immediate and positive impact on my special-needs / medically fragile family), and roll up my sleeves to do the hard work of getting out of
the rest of this mess our country finds itself in after the Economic Hurricane of 2008 left so many without homes, without jobs, with broken lives.
I want to take the hands of my fellow good-hearted Americans, whatever they believe in, whatever political point of view they have, whatever
passionate opposites they embody (from beezer to Heff to SO to ?), and just start cleaning it all up. I know some think it is impossible to do this
with Mr. Obama as our President - I say that we ALL have a stake in this country, we ALL need to shrug off the fog of partisanship and look at our
kids, look to their futures, and by-God (or whatever you believe in), leave them a better world than we have now. It is in OUR hands. Who is stoping
us from doing good in the world? What are we waiting for? We have met the enemy, and He/She is us. We have met the Neighbor, the Friend, The
Solution - and that is us, too.
