I know there are a lot of people who are going to be nervous and anxious today while waiting to see how their candidate does in the Primary.  The candidate diaries are also getting kinda tense.  I'm creating this diary so folks can unwind and refresh.  Feel free to post pics, pooties, poetry, humor, or other stress reducing matter.

To our Democratic candidates - good luck to you today!  We have no "losers" among our candidates, just people who are willing to take on the awesome responsibility of President, and work hard and make sacrifices to get there.  Regardless of whether you win today or not, we the people NEED you to help solve the massive problems the Bush Administration created for our country.  Thank you for being willing to take on the challenge.

A poem I wrote this morning for this diary:

Our Environment

White snow in a drift melted into the brook,
That gurgled past pines in the path that it took,
The scent of the pines was a joy to the deer,
That played in the grasses that grew there that year,
Bright wildflowers nodded their heads in the breeze,
And butterflies fluttered among them with ease,
The lake was so blue it brought shame to the sky,
Ducks paddled the ripples as they glided by,
A squirrel found food that he hid with his wiles,
The air was so clear the view spanned for miles,
I watched as the sun lit the mountains with gold,
And thought I’ll love this beauty ‘til I have grown old,
The sorrow I feel at the damage we’ve done,
Makes me swear to protect it until the fight’s won.

Here's a few pictures of our beautiful world:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
