15. some of us are there

even though we are hurt and angry. Some of us have never stopped trying to increase the democratic party. If we had no place to vent, well I don't want to think about it.
For some of us though we remain in the fight its a little dis heartening when you put in your all to make a better life for you and your children and it feels like nothing is working.

I have been in this game a long time. I have friends who ask me why do you follow politics so closely?? Why are you still working with those snotty nosed kids?? You are not going to change anything. Why are you sending those emails to politicians?? They don't give a fuck about us. Why? Why?

And I will admit after this verdict, I asked myself why?

Since my children were young I instilled in them the importance of their right to vote. I explained the corrupt For Profit Prison System. I explained to them about Weapons manufacturers and their need for more guns on our streets. Their dad and I have had " The Talk" with the boys and the girls. I registered about 100 people last year. About 20 this year. Been little slow. Probably will pick up on Saturday going to Justice March where I am sure I will get some more registered. But I will not LIE, my confidence has been shaken. And I have been shaken before (especially during ACA fight), this one just hurt real bad.
