  •  Relax! & welcome. You're fine. (6+ / 0-)

    And, you will do just fine.  This country was founded by a bunch of rather young people being their sincere, authentic selves -- and being willing to have the courage to speak up and get involved!  

    Just like you, now.  You don't have to be brilliant or have ALL the facts.  Just find a few of them that you know and feel passionate about.  You can learn more chatting to folks, here, as you go along.

    Hey, my son is 12 and he persuaded his Nana to vote for Barack with one line, "Nanna, you know how I feel about war.  I'm against it unless it's REALLY necessary.  I trust Barack would not take me to war unless it was REALLY necessary.  Please, vote for Barack for my future."

    What Nanna could say anything to that?  

    I had tears running down my face, and so did my Mom.

    You'll find your voice and issue and way to listen and talk to others.  Trust more in yourself - in your heart and mind.  

    And when you are trying to do something for something larger than yourself, you will forget all the stuff about yourself that make you nervous.

    Trust me.  And you will find you will be increasingly able to trust yourself. :)

    Welcome and don't forget to VOTE and get EVERY young person around you to vote EARLY if you are in an early voting state!
