Ya, I am going there. I just texted a young voter in Minneapolis. Nov 3, sunny and 57.

The day after, 58. They get it cold so these temperatures are like spring or something, lol. And here it is going to be a beautiful, warm, sunshiny fall day to wait in lines and vote. The person I text wants to do it day of. In person.

I told him, ... You all can rejoice and do an happy dance in the streets the next day. Free at last, free at last. Then we can all put our heads down and make it thru the next two months the best we can and hope we survive. But the day after, I think we need a nation celebrating in the streets. Like we had the woman's protest the day after election in 2017 in pink hats. World wide celebration.

Before the horse? Yes. But, I want to do it. We can all spontaneously break out in joy on social media, in the streets, seeing and dancing and cheering.

People, this election gets us as close as we can, to a known win and instead of projecting nervous and fearful, by gosh, I am going to enjoy it. We earned it. We deserve it. And I am taking it. I have voted and now for the next 6 days, I am going to cheer all those other voters on to have our national blue wave.

3. He knows better than I, lol. I am told they wear shorts in 30's. All in the layering. It is funny

getting a call late at night and walking home from the university. Ya... above zero, so we are good. I am wrapping a scarf around my neck if it is in the 40's and putting on glove.

2. Encourage your young voter to get it done early, if possible.

4. He is a responsible big boy and wants to do it election day. Not my choice, but he can decide

for himself.

6. He is an activist, 25 yr old law student and wants to be in it and take the risk, with precautions.

Again, as an old woman, I do not want to do that. As a young man, angry, having isolated for 8 months and fighting Trump for his future, while going to school, he thinks he has earned the right to vote how he wants to vote.

7. His anger will help drive us forward. I guess I have to understand that.

As an old man, my anger is cold like a sharpened icicle his is hot like a blacksmith's hammer.

Both approaches will be needed.

8. Yes. A whole other world. He wants to visit his old mama to make sure I am ok and can't

because he does not want to kill me. He wants to plan his future and is having a challenge educated on climate change. He was in the Minneapolis Floyd protests and the destruction afterward. He is angry at white abusive men against all of us and ready to take up a gun, too. To fight for our survival and that is how he is looking at it.

Mostly with words, but here lately, I have heard more from him as he considers rw extremists and Trumps refusal to follow law and order, and how poorly our police have behaved, throwing up their white power signs and killing black men.
