Good Morning!!

Emily Dickinson

Forever is composed of nows.

I like it!!   I am reading Joe Biden's autobiography, Promises to Keep.

What amazes me is how hard he worked for the Violence Against Women Act.   We forget that it used to be considered by many a legal right for a man to beat or rape his wife.   Contrast to Sarah Palin who when she came to the town of Wasila, 5000 people when she was elected, the rape rate was high enough that they could save money by eliminating paying for the forensic test for a raped woman.   One might think her priority would have been to not only pay, but also institute programs to help women.   I have read nothing about that.   These are the issues on how we choose our president and vice-president.  Both Obama and Biden have worked to personally help people, people not oil companies.  There is a difference.  I was reading that Alaska voted Democratic until oil was discovered in 1959.  It is a telling point.    When we care about our neighbors, human and animal, we vote as though we share a boat.   There are so many reasons to vote for Obama and Biden, it seems unnecessary to list them, and yet, we must continue to do so.

As Emily said, "Forever is composed of nows."
