That was before Sandy arrived and made it difficult for people to get out and vote. Some are displaced. Some don't have polling places available. Some have more important issues on their mind like finding food, keeping warm, and trying to rebuild.
With that in mind this post is not going to be about getting out to vote. It is going to be about how proud I am of the people that I have heard about reaching out to others. People that were first responders. People who called friends up and invited them to stay with them. People like a blogger who lives not far from me who is gathering supplies to be taken to New Jersey. People that are trying to teach their children how to make it through each day without knowing what tomorrow will bring.
All those people are all stars! They are in my thoughts and prayers!
