I'm feeling mellow today. This race is almost over and I'm going to miss seeing the names and reading about a lot of people involved in this election cycle.
I sent a message of thanks to Donna Brazile for the fine work she's done serving as Interim Director of the DNC through this election. She is a classy lady and did not deserve the abuse aimed her way. She lived out Michelle Obama's words "when they go low we go high."
There are a few millennials I want to thank for holding my hand through these troublesome days. They've helped me keep the faith when I might have wavered. Hillary's campaign manager is a millennial and did a fine job managing her campaign.
In the coming days it will be time to stay in contact with those elected to Congress. It's so easy these days to do that. In my case I will have the luxury of sending messages of thanks and encouragement because the ones I voted for are all Democrats that will be returned to office. Many of you will have a tougher task, but a more necessary task, of letting your Senators and Representatives know you oppose their positions on issues.
I don't know how effective it is sending digital messages but it makes me feel better, like I'm actually a part of the process, that I have a voice in this messy political process.
It's time now to think positive thoughts and to put those thoughts into action. This country badly needs to see positive action, and positive examples to follow.
