Just want to send some love out to our President to be Barack Obama and his family as he takes time away from the campaign to visit his beloved grandmother in Hawaii.
I was struck that when I heard that she was ill, it touched me as if it were my grandmother or something. It made me realize that I have never been this emotionally connected with a political candidate of any sort. It makes me think of what people must have felt when they were supporting the candidacy of Bobby Kennedy. When I saw the movie, I saw all the hope of the people as they wanted change so badly for the nation.
I tell you what, I notice how some people on the right are tremendously jealous of the way many Americans love Senator Obama. That’s just too bad if they don’t have what he has. We don’t think he is perfect or unflawed, but we believe in his heart in wanting to SERVE this country to help bring us to where we need to be, and his qualifications to get that very job completed. There will only be one like him that comes around in my lifetime. And I am thankful to have the opportunity to help him get elected.
Senator Obama is real. And though I have never met him I feel it not the least bit inappropriate to say, “Senator Obama, my brother, my friend, my president, God bless you and your family. Take care of your business and we’ll hold it down for you.
We Love You
