This Campaign

As I have been calling Democrats in Midland I have had contact with some who are not going to support Senator Obama anymore for one reason or another. I got so frustrated and it really tested my resolve to continue organizing, because I felt that I was just spinning my wheels.

After some soul searching I got back on the phones and made some headway. I felt better but I really got fired up about this campaign and I came to some realizations. 
1) This Campaign - is about community (bickering will occur, but is it not bigger than this campaign)
2) This Campaign - is about never giving up (even when the odds are stacked against you you move forward and work)
3) This Campaign - has character (because it has tapped into a sense of values that project optimism) 
I understand more clearly why the message of this campaign can be summed up with one word. HOPE! To all that are working hard keep on working. To those who are feeling like they are spinning their wheels make three more calls, go to three more houses, never give up, and don't let anyone tell you that what you are doing doesn't make a difference. Get inspired and help this campaign make history!
