For the last couple of weeks I’ve been really caught up in the election. I couldn’t take my eyes and ears off of the conventions, nor can I stop reading about it in the newspapers and online. I’m also glued to the news shows every evening.
Therefore not a lot of writing is going on in my life right now.
In the last election I refused to post anything – either here or any of my other social media networks – about politics or my views about politics. I didn’t want to offend any of my memoir customers who had different political views than mine. This election is too crucial for me to keep silent.
And already I’m sure you can tell I’m with Hillary. There is no way I would vote for a person like Donald Trump. But this is not to say I feel she is the lesser of two evils. I’ve felt all along that she has the most experience for the job of president of the United States, and she has respectful relationships worldwide that she can call upon when needed in our dealings with other countries. I also greatly respect her for her work with women and children and her advocacy for a woman’s right to choose and for equal pay for equal work. I certainly knew what it was like working in an unfair environment back in the day.
To get an understanding of how she works and what she’s like, I recommend reading her latest book, Hard Choices. I promise you, you won’t be sorry.
I also put my money where my mouth is. For the last two-three months I’ve been giving her a few dollars almost every day. I haven’t done any volunteering for her yet, but that’s on my list of things to do.
I recently read a Facebook post that said we have to hope for the best that she’ll win. Well, I think we have to do more than hope. We have to give money, our voices, and/or time to make a Hillary win possible. My husband always says, “Hope is not a strategy.” For those of you who share my feelings about Hillary, let’s help her win in every way we can.
