I’ve been absent for a bit. I know, it’s so not like me to be silent during a pivotal time, when decisions are being made in Olympia that are going to affect us for years to come.
To be honest with you, I’ve come to a point of burnout. I’m tired of the constant bickering and infighting. I might add that this isn’t between Dems and GOP either. It’s within my own party. This saddens me because I’ve always preached that united we stand, divided we fall. I feel like that very sentiment falls on deaf ears anymore.
I’m not sad about losing in last nights elections for Kitsap Democrat executive board. In fact, I’d like to take this moment to congratulate Carl Olsen and Susan Cruver for being elected to the Kitsap Democrat e-board. With my health failing and the schedule of back living in hospitals being a human pincushion, well, I hardly was the girl for the job.
Here’s what I really don’t like about the whole “events that transpired” last night. I don’t appreciate being verbally thrown on the train track with a train oncoming. I don’t appreciate the snide commentary in relation to me. In fact, nothing would give me greater pleasure than to sit around and have a ginormous ego like certain people and tout every last little contribution I have made to the democrat party.
I’ve learned something in the past few years. I’ve learned that I don’t need to run around flamboyantly talking up my accomplishments. I take on projects, I work on campaigns, I help in different areas because I believe in these things. I believe in those people whom I feel would make an outstanding difference in our world. I don’t do it for the accolades, I do it because it’s about moving forward and helping others.
Does this make me a “bad” democrat and more importantly, does this qualify me as absolutely bat shit crazy like some people proselytize to others on a consistent basis? it does not. What does that say exactly to those who choose to listen to said person as opposed to asking me directly for clarification and understanding?
It says that we’re not grown adults but more like immature brats who would rather hate than appreciate. It says that we’re no better than any other party who sits around the cauldron of doom wearing tinfoil hats. It saddens me because we collectively are so much better than this. We are.
So thank you so very much. Thank you for reminding me that each day is an uphill battle on the idea that I don’t need to put forth time and effort to haters. Thank you so
much for reminding me that I am a valuable person and my true friends see that. Most of all, thanks again for showing me that it’s not as much a social club as much as it is pitching in to make this world a better place.
Now that we’ve gotten all that out of the way, lets get back to some real news.
