Still Congested 

I’m still congested and had quite a headache last night. I watched what I could of the DNC, which I think has been going much better than the RNC last week. Last night was a tearjerker at times, especially when the mother of an Orlando victim spoke. I really enjoyed when the stars of Broadway sang “What the World Needs Now Is Love.” It was particularly nice to see Cagney and Lacey together again. All in all, it was a powerful night at the convention.

I also want to say, the night before Bill Clinton gave a wonderful speech. It was classic Clinton, and I don’t think anyone else could have put such a human face on Hillary and be able to give her history like he did. The speech made Hillary real like nothing else could have done.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    Praying for your cold, Joe. I suffer from chronic asthma, allergies and congestion so yeah…very similar symptoms. They’re the worst in the morning, but I’ve been trying to curb them by drinking lots of water, taking meds, going through my daily routine…the usual.

    Moreover, I got to see President Clinton speak in person when he came to Berkeley back in April. I just loved his presence and his charm. Like, I’m witnessing history in real time.

    While I’m happy for Hillary, going to school at UC Berkeley for the past year now has also made me like Bernie too. So, it’s hilarious to me when Bernie came out and finally endorsed Hillary.

    But to be real honest here, I don’t know who to vote for anymore. ‘Cause I also like Jill Stein’s policies too. 😉

    God bless,

    Josh in California
