Congratulations Senator Obama and Senator Biden.
Now is the time to Heal the Nation.
We thank all of the candidates, from all of the Parties,
who reached out to all of us.
Now, the hard work begins. All of us have to pitch in.
Barack, you promised to listen to us.
We’ll speak up.
Act with fairness, in peace.
Stay involved! Make a difference. Come together.
Best to all — Em
P.S. It has taken me a long time to find a complete roster of election results. Here it is. Those who voted Independent are in very rarified company, moreso than I expected. We need to expand opportunity to get their Independent message heard. Dignified discourse can only strengthen our country and challenge us to work beyond labeling one another. There are issues the major parties don’t address or don’t have good solutions for. And, if a 3rd or even 4th party are viable, then The People see that coalitions need to be built. It’s a good example for the rest of life – inclusion not side-lining.
