Doing the DNC!

I'm not sure how to put in words what an incredible experience it was to attend the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, and to be a part of such a historic moment. The speeches were inspiring and empowering. Strong platforms and detailed plans were presented. The positive energy and people's excitement for change was immense - you could have plugged us all in to a socket and the electricity would have ran the whole state! Here's me with 88,000 other excited people!
Going to and from the Pepsi Center and then the last night at Invesco Field was a trip with everyone selling everything from pins and t-shirts to "Michelle and Barack Fragrances" (his and her perfume)! And others were handing out everything from stickers, like "Rednecks for Obama" to condoms that said "Protect yourself from John McCain in this election!" There didn't seem to be many protesters, but the police presence was significant.

Denver was a wonderful host city with so many great restaurants and bars. And the people were so friendly and helpful! We made some time to go to the Manifest Hope Gallery that featured works by artists from around the world who rallied together to show their support for Obama. Here is Chris in front of one done by one of his favorite artists, Shepard Fairey.
