Woodstock?



















No, not quite, but Barrack thought it was a Woodstock concert with the huge turnout! Funny how the cute hot chicks from my office thought he was refrencing Woodstock, Virginia. Yeah, they're young ...... ha ha. He made a last minute decision stop in my town before heading to Hawii last week to see his ailing grandmother. LARGEST POLITICAL RALLY the county has ever had! Being that he personally invited me, I was not going to disappoint him. I would not, could not miss the opportunity to see history in the making. Little did I know that my "girls" from work would escort me. Over 35,000 people stood in line for hours to see him. As I peered at the sea of people I felt a certain pride. It was not only a peaceful rally but also one rich with cultural diversity. Literally people from every nationality and walk of life represented. It made me proud. This was not about ones skin tone. This was about the next leader of our country. I couldn't contain the tears when our govenor announced Barack to the cheering crowd. Neither could anyone else.....

I must admit, I have been a blog lurker for some time. My sister turned me on to your blog. Kind of a six degrees of seperation thing, she is friends with Shannon Przelomski, who if I have it all correct, traveled to China in your group. My sister Lori, www.stressisthenewblack.blogspot.com also has adopted 2 children from China. Long story short, I live in Leesburg, downtown in the historic district, and when my sister realized we lived in the same place she told me to check you out. I love your blog, and a huge Democrat and unfortunately was out of town when GOBAMA was here. My husband and son went. thanks for the pictures. Hope to run into you someday. Jane Rodgers
