Obama Supporters Time To Do What You Can

First of all, vote. Vote early if you can, yes even if it involves waiting in a line for 30 minutes as I did in Chicago this week.

Second, talk to family...especially those on the fence. Lobby friends, the personal trumps a random stranger's plea every time.

Third, get your butt down to 218 Sout Wabash, corner of Adams, and walk in to the 5th floor office to volunteer at the Obama HQ. Truly, they'll take what you offer. So skip the gym. Let the dog walk itself. Isn't your country's future more important?

Fourth, talk to your friends and family; especially Obama supporters. Remind and encourage them to vote. Don't let absentee ballots go in the trash as I was told one person saw.

Don't get mad on Wednesday, November 8th. No shoulda, woulda, coulda.

Have a Nike moment now. Just do it.

Work now.

Vote ASAP.

Breath a sigh of relief later.

    I was an accidental expatriate; love and marriage led me to it. One day I was a bandy-legged kid sitting atop my dogwood tree looking out of my small backyard world in 1950s New Jersey, wanting to move somewhere--anywhere, different. Next thing I knew my father had accepted a job in Houston TX. I was ecstatic, it was a foreign land in 1961 America. After high school graduation, my parents’ gave me a matched set of fawn-colored hardsided American Tourister luggage. Taking the hint, I went to college; well four colleges in five years--it was the 60s after all. Meeting a young hirsute anti-war, soon-to-be-Peace Corps volunteer, I fell in love. After finishing up college coursework for my degree, but before I even walking a graduation stage, I grabbed the paper airline ticket my boyfriend had sent me, my brand-new passport, and was off to the airport and Lima, Peru.
