    I've been working this campaign for more than a year, searching for volunteers and doing voter registration. It's tiresome, and sometimes thankless. Reading about yoru experience helps me get a fourth and fifth wind!

    Thank you for canvassing in Ohio. I know the OFA team appreciates your help. In Florida, we concentrate on are registering voters till the Oct. 9 cutoff.

    I also work iwth the NAACP and my sorority for voter registration. Next we're pivoting to push early voting and election day. That work is totally nonpartisan because the orgs are tax-exempt. We're nice to everyone and don't turn away anyone, including Romney people. But our coverage areas are neighborhoods that don't have many GOP supporters.

    This nation is going through a change that has escaped the media, pundits and the business community. We the people collectively are awakening to the shenanigans in Congress, double talk, lies, obfuscations and demagoguery. We're angry and tired of the mess and we want a complete change.

    Thank you again for joining this cause, and for sharing your experience. This is a great early morning taste of goodness!

      As the President has said, this is indeed a critical juncture in this country's history, and I don't want to wake up on Nov 7 regretting not doing the best I could to help make sure we still have a country that my family and I have a chance to succeed in.
