  •  Thank you for your work on the ground (0+ / 0-)

    and even though you get frustrated - remember that others experiences in life differ from ours and that means motivation for participation in the political process or even knowing how, or having the energy to educate oneself after the very act of survival can be more of an energy requirement than folks have at the end of the day.

    Think about those who worked before us in the civil right movement and fought for the vote for those who might not even be able to read and endured poll tests or those who didn't own property who encountered poll taxes.  It took a great deal of committment for those who endured beatings and jailings who dared to attempt registration to vote.

    When folks have been disincluded from the process for so long and perhaps are undereducated, they may not understand what is at stake or how to become involved.

    Your contributions are important ones, so take some time to be kind to yourself and that will help your endurance.

    Again, thank you for your efforts....
