To my blog readers:
No, I am not on the road again, but a few days ago I went somewhere, not far at all.
I left my office in the middle of the afternoon, under the Florida heat, to join the democrat crowd and to welcome Michelle Obama to Gainesville.
It was very exciting being one of 11,000 enthusiasts ready for change, hopefully helping to make history. Michelle was a very good speaker and she definitely ignited the crowd.
The US policies have affected the lives of so many, here in the US and abroad.
Even as a traveler, I felt the negative effects. When travelling abroad, in many countries I no longer felt free, or more importantly, safe, to say “I came from the US”, afraid of becoming target of one of the many enemies the US now has.
I do hope that soon I will be able to travel anywhere I wish to go, without the fear of being a target because I carry an American passport.
Happy travels to all, with hopes of a safe and peaceful world for all.
