I’ll tell you about my experience today while Obamando.
The first part of my day was spent giving rides to people in Marion county. I drove to neighborhoods I didn’t know existed to give three people rides to the polls. It was a blast for me.
In the early afternoon, I ran into my friend Tamaki, a wonderful woman from Japan who I know from my studies at IUPUI. She linked me to a couple of volunteers, one from Cleveland and the other from New York who lives in Indy but will return to NY soon.
We had a great time canvassing a struggling neighborhood in Indy where each voter we met had already voted for Obama.
I REALLY loved Tamaki’s energy and enthusiasm. She has been working hard for Obama because she believes in the promise of this country. It was a delight to canvass with her.
We ended the afternoon with a dinner at Sakura, a Japanese restaurant in Indy that I have always loved, but Tamaki led to to a menu choice that was delicious and very Japanese.
It was a great day.
Even if Obama doesn’t win Indiana, I’m proud of our efforts and volunteers from all over the city, state, and country.
