I was raised in a house divided....Mama was a Democrat and Dad was a Republican. I was in the 9th Grade when it all became very clear. The dinner table seemed to be the battle grounds for my parents, and I was just a listener. At school we were holding elections with buttons and signs, and it was all about the big school voting day. Nickson or Kennedy. I watched the debates with my parents and listened to what they had to say about who did the best job in front of the camera's. It seemed to me that it was more about how they looked in black and white, than what they said with my parents. But at school we had to write a statement about the debate, what you thought about their answers and did you believe in what they said. I will always be grateful for that time in my life, it made me pay attention to what each man had to say. Not what others were saying around them.
Which brings me to now. And now I find that we are a family divided. And once again I am listening to what these two men have to say and trying to figure out who I believe. filtering out the news media, the spin, the lies and trying to make the right choice. Not how he looks or where he comes from, or his religion, but the man. Is he talking to me or is he just another man that wants to live in the white house that doesn't care about me or you. Many things have been said about these two men, but my heart goes to what they say to me. Not the junk on the news or the words spread all over the net. So with that said, vote! and vote with real knowledge, not with the spin. Our country in in real trouble, some will not feeling the pain of it, but most will.
It is time to remember who we all are, I am not blue or red, I am Mary Evans American.
