Later just arrived. It is a beautiful day here in Lansing, KS.
We awoke early around 6 AM. Had a quick bite and headed off to the polls. We got there around 30 minutes prior to the doors opening. There were already about 50 people ahead of us. Just in front of us was an Army Major with his wife and infant child. There was quite a mixture of folks-black, white, male, female, young, matured (OK, old), still working, retired, and from all economic strata. It was quite a sight to behold considering the turnouts for past elections. People are taking this election seriously. Yet, they were also in good humor and obviously proud to be able to exercise this privilege and right. Some brought books, some called others to remind them to get to the polls. And, all were neighborly. What a great community, our Lansing.
My primary wish is for the country to be able to come together and get back on the road to prosperity and service to others.
So I wish that you would all continue to...
Serve with integrity, care about those you serve, and share the love in your heart/soul.
PS: Our daughter who lives in California just sent me an email with a wonderful story about campaigning. It truly tells what this campaign is really about. It is entitled My wife made me canvass for Obama.
