I’m about to turn into a small green blur for the day, but before I go out & leave my Mac to slumber, I’d just like to send a word out to all the candidates.
Kia kaha, e hoa maa, kia manawanui, arohatinonui ki a koutou katoa!
Be strong, my friends, be of great heart, my great love goes out to all of you!
Remember, we’ve been encouraging the young voters to “Do it for the love of it”;
Today, as we campaign, let’s hold that in our hearts.
Today, we do it for the love of our candidates, whom we’ve chosen thoughtfully and carefully, and for the children who don’t have a vote this time.
(And let’s remember those in society for whom we also vote – those in psychiatric institutions or prisons, those weakest in our society, for whom we hold responsibility as citizens, enfranchised).
Soundtrack for the last day:
Kora – (Polly, polly, polly,) Politician…
Salmonella Dub – For the love of it
