Things I've done in the last two weeks that I never thought I would do.

  1. Cry over election results
    Sad cry. I happy cried when Obama was elected.
  2. Friend people on Facebook that I don't know in person yet
  3. Join a planning committee for local political activism and take a leadership role
  4. Plan to meet people I've only met on Facebook
  5. Look for books that explain how to be an social and political activist.
    Thank goodness they are out there because I don't know what the hell I'm doing.
  6. Call Senators and Representatives
    Thank goodness for scripts to follow.
  7. Tell my husband he doesn't have to like it, but it would be best if he pretends otherwise
  8. Tell myself I don't have a choice. I can't leave this for others to do. I have children who deserve to grow up in freedom and peace.
    If I won't do it for them, how can I expect others to?
