THE AFTERMATH OF THE ELECTON
I woke up this morning in total despair. My dream of a new president have faded. I have contacted the union office and we are all in disbelief. John Kerry won the state of Illinois. But now the hope and dreams of a new tomorrow, for a new beginning,of a new government is now gone and have faded away.

I was watching the speech of John Kerry, I was touched when he said:


"Our troops are all in harms way--- we have to pray for all of them".

I was thinking now of the troops that we have in Iraq, and the many dangers that they now have to face, especially the guerrila tactics and suicide bombings the enemy is doing to them. I pray hard that this will not be another Vietnam. I have relatives and friends who are now in Iraq. GOD SAVE THEM ALL!

The other statement that really touched me most also, when he said:

"Health care should be affordable for all -- not only for the few".

I was thinking of myself. I am taking so much drug--which was prescribed to me for the rest of my life. Sooner or later, i will be retiring. I am thinking of what will happen to me in my retirement, when my insuRance wont be able to cover so many prescription medication that I am taking.

Suddenly, I felt my eyes burning, I thought it was my sugar---- I was in tears.

MY DREAMS FADED AWAY--- THE GREAT WHITE HOPE IS NOT TO BE!!!!
