  •  I can't go with you physically (10+ / 0-)

    but my heart is in your pocket.  I've had 3 heart attacks, have an internal cardio-defibrillator (the shocker for bad heart arrythmia).  I can't take temps higher than 78-79, cause I pass out.  So your story about 100 degrees is like listening to SuperWoman battle the elements.  No joke to me, really.  You make me cry with your story.  I wish I could go with you, because I speak Spanish (used to teach high school Spanish and French).  Believe me when I say to you:  I will think about you every day until the election, and beyond.  You make my heart sing. The ONLY hope for us is Obama, and people who care, like you do.  He is the solution. YOU are the solution.  You go again, and I'll be with you in spirit.  Really, my Olivia, thank you.

        Puede votar?  (poo-AY-day boh-TAHR?) Can you vote?
        Quien le gusta mas?  (Key-AYN lay GOO-stah mahss?) Who do you like more?
        Quisiera registrar?  (Kee-see-AY-rah ray-hees-TRAHR?) Would you like to register?

        Que paso?  (Kay pah-SO)?  Hey, what's happnin'? (This sounds more with-it in Spanish than the English suggests - it's not 1979, in other words) And no, Mexican people do not say Que pasa? (from Cheech and Chong) - it's past tense, always.  Like saying What happened?  (don't ask why - they just do, that's all).

        The syllables that are in capitals are the stressed syllables.  The h means that you say the a like in La-la-la-land.   mahss is not mass.  It's like saying half of "mama" with an "s" sound after it.

        You go show these people some reality, my hero.  Real concern, real love, and all the reality in your soul.  I'm with you.  You are my hero.
