Day 1 of the convention!
i'm not going to the lie, the whole Ted Kennedy bit got me a little choked up. regardless of his politics, it can't be argued that he is a fighter. and him being there against his doctor's orders and delivering the speech he did with so much conviction...let's just say, it was inspiring.
and hot damn, michelle obama! not that it matters, but this is the best i've seen her look. and she was so poised and confident! this is a first lady i can jump on board with. AND i had no idea her dad struggled with and died young from Multiple Sclerosis. MS hits VERY close to home for me and i can empathize COMPLETELY. go michelle!
Michelle Obama Speech - Democratic National Convention 2008
young people - i can't urge you enough to pay attention and get involved. everyone knows the country has gone to shit and it's not going to change if we continue to be a generation of apathetic, self-involved, douchebags. take a couple minutes to watch just ONE speech. or pick just ONE issue that affects you and see where the politicians stand. just give it a try!
alright, i'm done preaching now.
