Make no mistake. Your powerful contributions to Colorado Women Against Palin were crucial to being able to wear ear-to-ear smiles today. You should feel great that you were an active part of history. Now we all have stories to tell our children and grandchildren someday.
It's been a wild ride, eh? As Jenn mentioned, that first protest in Golden seven weeks ago seems like ages ago. We've done so much: protesting Palin in Golden, Centennial and Loveland; protesting in wind and rain at McCain's "women's town hall" in downtown Denver and getting clobbered by McCain's supporters at the Western Arena rally; rallying at Babies R Us in Westminster and Belmar shopping center; two VP debate parties and then finally, the capstone at the Boulder Theater last night.
As you well know, last night was filled with tears attempting to express the thousand emotions we were all feeling. And how wonderful it is to be an American! When you look at the voting statistics of our precious state, know that it couldn't have done it without you.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and feel incredibly grateful to have gotten to know you intelligent, passionate and sassy women in this historic experience. And hang on to those "Lipstick" t-shirts. Our favorite Alaskan governor plans to run again in 2012!
