  •  omg - didn't expect to do that too... (9+ / 0-)

    eyes welling up and spilling over.
    I've been working to move my Dad to my home over the past year - he's 90 yo and lives alone since my mom passed away last year.  We now have a closing date for his house so the end is in sight.  Even though this is a good thing, it has limited the amount of time I have to do other things, like GOTV, outside of work.  But this young person has shown me and others here, just how passionate and emotional this race really is!  I was able to get one person to register to vote though - my own son.  I am single mother that raised two son's on my own.  Because of the ACA, I am able to keep him on my insurance after his graduation from college.
