Just posted over at JK-com is a thank-you from the Senator to all those who made comments to his announcement Wednesday.
In this thank-you he has asked for people who wanted a John Kerry campaign for the presidency to shift gears and give the same effort for a “campaign for our country”. I think it was a great choice of words and I personally have been able to finally “get out of the funk” I have been in since Wednesday.
I made a brief comment asking the Senator to tell the community exactly what he needed us to do. To me his request is the same kind of request as he and others made to our soldiers and citizens some 35 years ago, and their actions may have shaved years and thousands of lives off the cost of the Vietnam War. Hopefully JK and his team will come up with some concrete, grassroots ways for us to utilize the time and energy that we were preparing to use for a presidential campaign.
If you are in your own “funk”, I highly recommend making a comment over there and letting our favorite Senator know that we’ve still got his back, not just in words on a blog or as attendees to his next event, but members of a community that are ready to act in a very real way when we are called to help make his agenda the primary issue and stance in this country.
