That was an absolutely wonderful read.

And I truly could picture DU as a town, the kind you never want to stray too far from. You always want to know the locals, the best place to hang out. You call it home.

I've never found another place like this. I don't bother looking anymore. This is home.

I'm not feeling well, and it finally stopped raining long enough for me to go outside and take a walk. And while I was on that walk, I was thinking of how lucky we all are to have each other to turn to, especially right now.

I live alone. I have no family. They have all passed away. Yet I never feel alone, because I know everyone is here.

I can come on here and participate as much as I want. I can read and educate myself. I can laugh, I can cry, I learn. This is home.

Three guys came up with a wonderful idea and turned it into a reality. I wandered in here in 2004, and I've never left. DU educates, it opens our minds and our hearts. It takes us on trips to places we never thought we could see, through the eyes of those who live in different countries.

We support each other through the tragedies of life. And we celebrate each other's good fortunes.

We are the luckiest group of people on the internet.
This is home.

Of course it is.

I've been saying this for months. This election is about two words. Beat Trump. That is our only issue.

All the other issues can be taken care of once we have a Democratic candidate who can beat Trump, sitting at the Resolution desk in the White House.

We have had an amazing group of candidates running. But Joe Biden is the one who will bring us the biggest turnout in November. That is how we Beat Trump.

I hate to say this, but it's true. I personally know Democrats who feel this way. Bernie is too far left. Some people will not vote for a gay candidate. Some people will not vote for a woman candidate. And some people are sick of those who can buy their way into office. When even Democratic voters hold these prejudices, they will not show up to vote when the person on the top ticket is someone who fits into one of these categories. I hope the day comes when we grow up, and none of these reasons matter. But in 2020, unfortunately they still do.

Joe Biden is someone we can trust. Also importantly, the world knows they can trust him. The world knows him through his work as the vice president. He already has established relationships all over the world. He can start healing this country, and our standing in the world, on day one.

What a lot of people don't seem to understand is that this is not a normal election. We don't have the luxury of voting for our sentimental favourite. We don't have the luxury of voting for the person with whom we most closely identify. We have a madman in the White House. If we don't remove him by way of ALL of our votes, I doubt he will ever leave. He wants to be a dictator, and he is doing everything he can to assure it happens.

We know he's afraid of Joe Biden. Trump's team knows that Joe Biden is the one person who will bring out the vote, who can Beat Trump, and end this national nightmare.

AverageJoe, I totally agree with you.

I do not understand how we can't be kind to each other even while we are supporting different candidates.

The end result is the only thing that matters. This country needs to elect a Democratic president.
That is our one and only goal right now. Once we get that Democratic president in place, then we can get into the serious issues of the day.

While the Republicans are tearing this country apart, we need to be bringing it together. And we can't do that if we can't even be civil to each other on a message board.

After the Senate voted to acquit drumpf, I actually noticed a different tone here for about 24 hours. People were actually being nice to each other, no matter who their candidate was. Now it's back to 'normal.'

We can do better than this. We have to do better than this. If we don't, the price we are going to have to pay is one we cannot afford.
