A long road to this moment and at 11:15 yesterday, I stopped what I was doing to sit close to the TV screen and shoot like crazy. It’s not a perfect shot, it’s not a perfect law, but with some time and revision, health care will be available to everyone.
Feels so good to have this victory of Obama and the country. Feels good, even though I am already dealing with those in my FaceBook set of “friends” who sound like Tea Partyers. Should I delete them for their excessive hatred. I have already done that for some. I used to try and engage them in conversation but that didn’t go anywhere. Sometimes I would find a comment on my status updates and we would go back and forth. I know we live in a democracy, but the excessive hatred is more than I can deal with.
So, I’m leaving them for now, but waiting to see how hateful they get. And then reconsider.
On the positive side, we are off to DC today on behalf of our Hudson Valley Writing Project, to meet with congressional aides for their continued support. Now that education reform will be take center stage, it’s time to prepare for that fight to the top.
Should be fun, sharing a hotel room with two cool women. One bathroom?
