Letters to Tuvia Y2#13: Debate #1 HILLARY/Breathing Again (9/27/16/)


Morning T,

We can breathe.  Hillary was magnificent last night.  I sat with a glass of Belvedere vodka and my little Hill and waited through the political chatter quietly freaking.

What would you have been doing/thinking?  Probably most of your energy would be concentrated on keeping me calm.  Instead, I was texting Tara, tweeting, FBing.  Waiting!

And then we were off… and I was sipping and breathing and smiling and watching the Donald self destruct after the first 20 minutes…

We all watched the event and now I wonder what those undecided voters will do. I need to see the poll numbers start ticking up for Hillary by the end of the week.

I need to feel that we are not alone.  Others have to see that the Donald is not up for the office of president.  Right?

I am smiling.  I am breathing… I am hopeful…

  1. Indeed, I am hopeful, and wishing we could have watched together! I guess we sort of did via FB! It was certainly illuminating, and no surprise. I find it so hard to believe that Kelly Ann Conway can keep defending. . . Thanks, Bonnie for sharing!

  2. I live in a highly Republican area so you can guess what the political atmosphere around here is like. It is definitely going to be an interesting election. I can only hope that people think reasonably about their choice before marking their ballot.

  3. I have been quietly despairing as I watch the poll numbers each day. I think the whole world is suffering under the weight of fear and hate & That Awful Man is just another symbol of it. I could not watch last night, but I baked cookies as I listened to the TV in the other room. I thought she did well & breathed a little easier. But there is a long time between now and November….

  4. I have been quietly despairing each time I check the polls. Last night I breathed a little easier, but there is a long stretch between now and November. I think that Awful Man is a sign of the terrible time the world is in right now, so full of suffering, cruelty, and fear. It is hard to hang on to hope.

  5. I loved your FB posts from the debate! I only read them after it was over or I would have commented. I absolutely get sick when I think of the possibility of that man leading our country. I hope people wake up.

  6. I’m often a defensive pessimist, so I’m leery of committing to hope. I’m still breathing, though, and definitely smiling after seeing the photos that went with today’s slice. Thanks for your perspective in concise words and pictures, Bonnie.
