Why do I have a pink Obama banner? Do you wonder?
Is it because I think you'll see it and want to vote for him too?
Is it because I feel the need to shove my political views down your throat?
Is it because I like pink?
Maybe, getting warmer.
It's simply because I feel like it's the least I can do. For me. Just for me. It's a little glimmer of my own hope everyday when I get on here to write or to see what other people have written. I see that pretty pink banner and I think, "It's almost over." And that gives me a little comfort. Last election was such a let down. For me. I don't care anymore who agrees with me. I don't care who you're going to vote for. Really. I want things to go a certain way, but I'm not about shoving anything down anyone's throat. Like religion, views on pro-life vs. pro-choice, stem cell research, war, the whole nine yards. We all have different opinions. And you know what? Plenty of people do post them on their blog and I think that's great. Seriously, write whatever you want. Nobody's holding a gun to anyone's head to read it. I admire it. It's easier for me to write about silly things, concerts, vacations, yoga, nice things, things that don't upset anyone. I'm a yoga teacher. I just want everyone to be happy. I will admit when I see signs in people's yards that say McCain, I'm curious. I don't get it. It makes me think though. Think, "Damn, you're a glutton for punishment." No, I'm kidding. It does make me wonder though. I listen to the arguments, although it's all started to sound like the adults in the Charlie Brown specials voices to me at this point, wah wah wah wah wah wah. But I'll listen. Then I'll go back to what I'm doing and patiently wait for November to get here, and I'll do that with hope, with a little pink banner that says Obama.
