photojournalism in musing and pictures

In honor of election day…

These photos are not new.  I took them about a year ago, when Obama came to speak at ASU on Oct. 19, 2007.  They are the property of The East Valley Tribune… so if you’re new here it means don’t take them.

There are so many emotions involved in this election.  I let myself get so worked up that I literally cried while listening to This American Life‘s story about Obama supporters confronting racism.  It breaks my heart to see people on CNN scream xenophobic chants about his name, and call him a Muslim.  Not because there is anything wrong with Islam, but that people would hold that against him in such a vicious way.  I guess I side with Colin Powell on this one. He put it the best so I won’t bother repeating it.

In a week it will all be over, but until then, I will have trouble sleeping.

It will be interesting to see how many young people actually vote.

Ah, Tempe.
