The Words

Behind the layout.  As promised.

Focus Vote

When you flip up the top flap:

Read between the lines...focus. Read between the lines. Connect the dots.  Are you tired yet?  Tired of being scared of what might happen instead of hoping for what could happen?  Does your life depend on this? Will you have a job tomorrow if you wait in long lines to maybe have your voice heard?  Read between the lines....Does it matter enough to you to be so impolite as to actually talk about politics?  Did you ever think you would see the day?  Read between the lines..Do tears come to your eyes making it hard if not impossible to focus on what is really at stake?  Read between the lines...Is it your home?  How about your little brother?  How about your safety?  If you happen to live on a coast?  how about your basic way of living if you live on a gulf coast? Is this the time? Is this the time to say one thing but do another?  Read between the lines...Do you really believe in campaign finance reform? Are you really putting country before self ambition?  Do the polls matter that much if no one tells the truth rather than their own version of "facts"? Read between the lines...Does everything have to be so political?  So lacking in common sense? So overboard and underhanded?  Is it really okay to win at all costs? What happened to common decency?  What happened to at the very least being respectful of other people?  People.  Fellow Americans. Why does it always have to be such a long drawn out game? Complete with scare tactics that prey on the worst of us and then implore us to trust and have faith that really everything will be alright.  Read between the lines...What is the worst that can happen? Will it really be that bad?  Read between the lines. Are you sure?  Where is your faith now? Where is our faith?  Why are we even here?  read between the lines.  I thought we had come for enough to connect the dots.  I thought we were better than this.

Thanks for looking/reading.
