Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Members Registering Houston Voters

On September 25, 2012, was National Voter’s Registration day. I videotaped three women at a Metro transit station after they informed me that they were continuing their efforts to register voter prior to the November 6, 2012, election. The women are members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated. According to one of them has partnership with Metro Houston’s mass transportation agency to register eligible voters for the 2012 presidential election. Like many people these women realizes that voting is a right that all Americans should exercise during on November 6, 2012.

CHANGING Washington and America by Volunteering for President Obama

On September 15, 2012, I volunteered at President Obama’s re-election headquarters in Houston, TX. I volunteered because I am being the CHANGE that President Obama referenced and that I voted for in both the 2008 presidential and the 2010 midterm elections. More importantly I volunteered because I believe that for better or worse the result of the November 6, 2012, Presidential Election will forever CHANGE America. This election is this nation’s true Waterloo moment. On November 6, 2012, we must not allow the Republican Party to achieve their goals of making President Obama a one term president and/or “taking “OUR” country back. We are not going back or BACKWARDS. We are moving FORWARD with President Obama and his vision of CHANGING Washington in order to make America a more perfect nation that offers OPPORTUNTIES for equality, justice and a first class education for all of its citizens.
