Although my candidate did not win, and a great deal of unfairness and corruption was revealed, I consider the Convention a success. It was a deep and meaningful education about our system of government and how far we have to go to take control of it. But now that I am faced with a mountain I have a choice: turn my back on it, or climb it.
Some of you know me already, so you gave me some rope and supplies... LOL
So many others, and many who don't know me but supported me in trust, contributed in ways just as meaningful. And I have made wonderful friendships with so many people who are passionate about changing things. Thank you all for that. You have created a monster. As I told another activist friend, "I will not quit until I am dead." It's a sign of the times that he replied, "Thank you for the positive words."
