70. As someone who has walked, knocked on doors since I was 17, you are a hero to me.
Unless one has ever canvassed neighborhoods and worked from poorly printed sheets as you struggle to find apartments or houses or mobile homes, unless you have had people scream at you from their porches as you approach their homes, unless you have walked alone on streets you've never known in the rain with even the flu on behalf of a candidate or our party, then it's easily understood how the sacrifice of someone like Emit can be taken for granted.

I was more moved by your post than just about anything I've read at the DU in months.

You are a true "foot soldier" for changing our nation and our planet.

You are a hero to me, Emit.

Every post you write from this moment on will always be seen by me through that prism.

K&R.
