I have heard some remarkable stories about how people are helping to CHANGE America, largely through the inspiration Obama has delivered to us.
- A 106 year old woman insisted on going to the polls instead of using a mail ballot
- Married couples who were both Republican are now split: one is for Obama and one is for McCain, while I have found many to have switched from Republican or Independent to Democratic.
- A woman in a wheel chair insisted on going out to canvas!! Two people accompanied her.
- A twenty-year old told me he had no reason to vote because "the system" would continue to screw him. A week later he called to say he had registered to vote and would vote early.

I was heading a canvass on Saturday, Oct 4 in Anna Maria, FL. One of the volunteers was a mother of an 8 week old baby and a three year old. I had two packets; one with over 80 names and the other with less than 50 names. She chose the larger packet and completed the entire canvas in 4 hours with a baby and a toddler.
If this woman is willing to come out in the heat with two children, we all should be able to canvass and work in the coming 10 days!
Send me your stories. All over the world people are watching what we do here. Let's show them and ourselves that we choose HOPE over FEAR.
