If ever there was any doubt that each person in this country could have a say in how we are governed and in what is right and what is wrong, lay it to rest. Every one of us did this, every single one of us added up to a consensus that has changed this country forever. Thank God.

January 20th ....
I am looking forward to it. I am so happy that the world is such that all of this last 6 months could be written about and saved online. I have this for my grandchildren and they will always be able to see the struggle,and that the world took notice of a man who is not as liberal as I would have liked but is more concerned with all the people of this country than anyone ever thought he could be. All they had to do was look in his face. a good face.

It is so strange to me that all of the things that conservatives have publically bashed liberals for over the last 40 years, are things that many conservatives have hidden in their closets. We protested strenuously, openly, and honestly against the Viet Nam war, while conservatives got deferments while proclaiming that terrible war to be right, just like now, and then, when they could no longer do that, they had their doctors fake their medical files. This is Saxby Chambliss....now known as Saxby "Shameless" in Georgia. This is a man who was finally found, after 4 deferments, to have bad knees. Of course, now he shoots in the 90's. What a horrible person.
This just in from Alaska ..... Sarah and Saxby
On another note, and I admit it is petty and small but has anyone seen the Thanksgiving ad from his family? Interesting. and what does "Happy Thanksgivin' " mean when it is said so morosely?
I will miss the election on Tuesday...the run-off between Saxby Chambliss, who is continually telling lies about Jim Martin and who was a major draft dodger while many of us were in the service during Viet Nam(including Jim martin). It just amazes me what people will do who say they are christian. In any event ...I already voted, and Al Franken, it seems, lost unless a judge decides he wins...so the 60 seats are very iffy right now. We will get them in two years.
I am leaving for my 2nd annual trip to Disney World with a light heart about the administration and a very heavy heart because of India. Josie has many Indian friends, very close ones and they tend to live such centered lives ...very careful about recycling and how they treat people...they truly believe in karma so they are, i'm sure, as upset as we were during 9/11. Sad. Marty has stayed at The Taj when he flew for Delta...such a shock to see this happen.
Disney will be a lovely break from the rainy cold here and when I get back.....it is work, work, work.....I LOVE watching Jos at Disney!
Thanksgiving was very thankful this year...big family and all at peace.
