  •  It is hard not to be moved by (9+ / 0-)

    Gordon and Faye, by you and Chris and Danielle and Billie, by those who've come in and called dozens of people, undeterred by calls that are rarely answered. Those who walk, ring doorbells, rarely answered. The total effort is NOT for us individually. It is for us collectively. It is what it means to be a Democrat.

    •  Absolutely right. These are sincere and kind... (7+ / 0-)

      people who want good things to happen. So often they get no answer, hang ups, no reply at the door, failure to follow through on promised volunteering. Those are discouraging.

      Once in a great while, you meet someone who is eager to talk, volunteer, give a cheery smile, thank you for your time and effort. You hear from people whose lives have actually been made better by such things as the ACA. They sometimes have tears in their eyes.

      Those encounters motivate you keep pushing, calling, and knocking. We don't want to let those people down.
