First off, I love people in Ohio. They were so kind! Not one person told me off or wanted to scream obscenities at me before they even knew why I was calling. Most of the voters I spoke to were older. Take Joyce, she’s 91 and was so sweet. . she made me promise to call her tomorrow and tell her who won the election. She said she is a black woman and she has been hanging on to make sure that a black man would hold office before she died. I so fell in love with her. And you know I’ll be calling her tomorrow!
Secondly. . FUCK Colorado. Damn, those people need a vacation or something. Everyone single one. . . no really EVERY single one of them were rude! When did screaming into a phone constitute the proper, appropriate response? This wasn’t my first day calling, as I’ve made over 300 calls, but without fail CO has been the worst to call. I will NEVER vacation in CO.
Third, there really are A LOT of people voting this election. Though I believe, with all my core, that Obama will win, if he doesn’t he can credit himself for motivating a nation to get involved. . FINALLY. To many have sat silent and not let their voices be heard. I hope the momentum doesn’t stop tonight. I hope that I’m just as willing to call strangers for a cause I believe in.
I’m proud of myself and love knowing that I helped make history!! I await waking up in the morning and seeing America take a step forward, for a change, and embrace change 🙂
