The third and final debate and the Big Draw day #15 Tonight I watched the third and final presidential debate here in the good old US of A. I think by now if you've been following my blog you realize that I have a bent towards and for Barack Obama for President. Today on my noon walk I took my ballot to the post office and mailed it off. I have voted! Nothing in tonight's debate would have swayed my vote to be other than it was. If anything it only firmed things up in my mind and opinions. On my way back to my office from the post office I had to walk through a group of teenagers on their lunch time break from the nearby high school. I overheard one boy telling another something that upset me greatly. I heard words like "...want a white one..." and "shoot him in the head." Needless to say I was disheartened by this kids words and possible view point. I hoped he was in a minority of his peers and my peers too for that matter. He was crossing the street in one direction and me in another. I wish I had more time to gather my thoughts and say something to him to make him see the error of his ways...but I doubt I could have made much of a difference in the few seconds we were in each others company ever so by chance as it was for that split second that it took him to say his racial slurs and me to cross my street. What would you have done under those circumstances or what would you have liked to have done had you the opportunity?
