I DID IT! I finally got through my Google Reader! There was some good stuff there, though I'll need to reread some of it -- I think my eagerness to get through it all made a lot of things a bit of a blur.

At the very bottom of my Google Reader was the latest by Jay Smooth. You know I love him, so here is his Poem for the Young Voter:



I was actually thinking the other day about having a conversation with kids years from now and telling them what we were doing right here, right now. These days leading up to Nov. 4 are basically mental & emotional roller coasters. Let's hope we end with a thrilling stop instead of falling out of our seats at the final dive and splattering on the ground. Okay, that was a bit much, but whatevs.


By the way, I promise that I'll start posting actual words soon instead of videos, links, etc. I've actually got a crapload of ideas, just no time to write any of it. I realize I've become a blogger who doesn't actually blog, which is really quite embarrassing, but I ask for your patience during this crazy time. Note: Don't ever complain about being a bit bored at work, because then the universe will LOL at you and the shiznitty will hit the fan.

I feel you on the lack of time to blog! The little bit of time I've had has been spent on commenting and not putting up my own stuff. (Which reminds me I have yet to put up the final part of "Black Male Privilege eh?").

Don't discouraged you'll pull through!

As of tomorrow I will become a first time voter. I am thrilled for such a histortical election to be my first. So much is as stake for myself and those around me,but for the first time I have HOPE. HOPE in that my younger siblings will receive an equal education, HOPE in that poverty will be tackled, HOPE in that the CHANGE many of us have been yearning for, will occur. Many years from now younger generations will be reading about tomorrow in there textbooks and with a smile in my face I will say "YES I helped make that change" or "Yes I fought for what I believed in, and although my candidate was not elected... I fought and believed"

I feel empowered and tomorrow I will put my power and rights to good use...hoping for the best.

That's the important thing, IMO. Because at the end of the day, even if something doesn't go our way, we still did what we could to make it happen. We did our part.
