I finally have a day off after the insanity of the past week. I’ll write about manga later (no, really), and I’ll be catching up on everyone else’s blogs too. But for the moment, I offer this.
It’s an old video, I know, and everyone saw it months ago. But I watched it again this morning, and ended up with tears pouring down my face.
I thought about apologizing for making such a blatantly partisan statement here, but then I remembered two things: 1) Hey wait, this is my blog! 2) It’s not actually a partisan statement. My support of Barack Obama has very little to do with party politics. I support him because I believe he has the intellect, the vision, the compassion, and the fortitude to be a truly great leader, and that he is the greatest hope we have for healing this broken nation.
If you are able to vote today for a candidate you truly believe in, I am very happy for you, no matter which candidate that is. If you are not, I hope that someday you will be, because it really is an incredible experience. Today I feel truly excited and grateful to be able to participate in my democracy. I wish the same for all of you.
