32 1/2 Hours!

The Polls close here on the West Coast in 32 1/2 hours. I have a wonderful friend Winona who at 94 years old has seen incredible changes in her life time.

Two World Wars, women getting the vote, the stock market crash, the Great Depression, The New Deal (FDR made her a Democrat for life!), Korea, the Civil Rights Act passage, Kennedy's Assassination, Viet Nam, MLK's Assassination, man landing on and coming back from the moon, a President resign and a President impeached, etc!

This doesn't even take into account the technological changes such as computers, the internet, email, cell phones, jet travel, television, etc.

But, she is convinced the one thing she never thought she'd see is an African American being elected President.

We have a mail-in election. She's already voted. She voted for Obama. She is convinced he is going to win.

32 1/2 hours of work left.

Make it happen... for Winona... and for America!
