Once on This Earth

Hello Darlings,

Well, we're getting down to the final few hours before.... TUESDAY!!!

I don't know about y'all, but I'm a nervous wreck. If you live in Los Angeles, I hope to see all of you at the Henry Fonda Theatre on Tuesday night for the big election party.

I have to say if I had to look on the bright side of this entire election cycle (I always try to imagine the government as half full as opposed to half empty) it's great to see so many people come together to try to make the world a better place.  On the other hand, however, I have been so saddened by the shocking abundance of negative rhetoric in this campaign  - against homosexuals, and reviving racism with McCain/Palin's low blows towards Obama.

It's important to remember - as I'm sure all of ya'll that read this already know - that we are once on this earth. There are those that walk it with us - in our communities, in our country and on this earth. We are all here at the same time sharing this experience we call life. That we call "humanity". Do you want to spend your precious time here judging others, hating, fighting or would you rather have love in your heart? It takes so little to lift your eyes up towards your neighbors, your coworkers, the people at the grocery store, the others in traffic, people who may act or dress or look differently and to not just look but see. We do not walk alone. Greed is not good. We are once on this earth. We are all here together. Wouldn't you rather have love and understanding?

Just a thought on this fine Sunday. Two days to go. I'm freaking out.

Here's a couple more little videos.

Families Against Prop 8 (newest campaign ad)

Eric McCormack, Dana Delany - Love Honor Cherish - No on Prop 8

One minute long and a must see (thanks Jack!). Ronald Reagan Endorses Barack Obama.

Ron Howard goes back to Mayberry with Andy Griffith and Around the Clock with THE FONZ...all for Obama
See more Ron Howard videos at Funny or Die

This video actually kinda made me tear up. It's a video taken at the very very very back and top of the stadium the night Obama gave his DNC speech. The kids are from a group home from Denver's Five Points neighborhood. Their words. Touching.
