SD: Happy Memorial Day!
Happy Memorial Day!
It is really, REALLY, gratifying to see all the volunteers across this state who are excited to be out campaigning for a cause they believe in (heck, even the GOP volunteers). It is even more moving to see all of them up this morning - on very little sleep - heading out on Memorial Day to get people out to vote. I can’t think of a better way to thank the millions of folks who have put themselves in harm’s way to protect this very ideal.
We read every day about how people are getting less and less involved in their communities, less interested in voting, etc. etc. but I can tell you that Democracy is ALIVE AND WELL - thanks to the sacrifices made by our vets and their families.
On top of that, it bears mentioning that we are here fighting the House GOP, who frequently vote to shaft veterans.
