It’s been said that it takes a village. Or if we address it by its official distinction:
It takes a village to raise a child.
However, if there is one thing that this campaign has taught us:
It takes a nation to exhibit change
We’ve been on a long road these many centuries and we’ve made changes which have shaped not only this nation, but also the world. When Barack Obama was announced President Elect, parties rang out in the streets across the world. Some people who hold on dearly and tightly to their ideals hoping the world will not change, sadly were in for a rude awakening. This was the straw which broke the proverbial camels back. The world is always changing, the question you must ask yourself; do you want to be an agent of change? In line with the early adopters and the innovators, there has never been a better opportunity in our life times to not only watch change happen but to be part of the evolution of change.
It takes a child to raise a village. And it takes you to change a nation.

I received this little letter in the email today.
I know that there were severely limited quantities of these tickets available. And by the looks of it, I strongly have the potential to be one of those there at the event itself!
Oh, the wonders of being a Technological Independent!
Thank you for signing up to receive a ticket for the Election Night event at Hutchinson Field in Grant Park, Chicago.
Your ticket will be emailed to you on Monday, November 3rd, between 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Each ticket is personalized for the ticket holder and is non-transferable.
You must print your ticket and bring it with you to the event. Each ticket is valid for you and one guest.
The Democratic Party
P.S. — Ticket holders should walk towards Grant Park on Congress Parkway, then walk south on Columbus Drive to the site.
For security reasons, do not bring bags. Photo ID is required. Please limit personal items. No signs, banners, chairs, or strollers allowed.
Now all I need to do, is get myself a non-expired ID (State Police took mine for “speeding”) and I’ll be gangbusters for the event on Tuesday! As it is, I’ll already be downtown that day!
On a separate note, I feel it’s a bit insane that Police will take your ID for activities as “bond”, leaving you effectively with no ability to get into government buildings, or even if you’re beaten/left for dead, a piece of paper is hardly any form of “Identification“
