Do you participate in political polls? You know, the phone calls that show up as “out of area” and “000-000-0000” on your caller ID? I do.
They’re more than a little tedious, annoying even.
But when I read about a poll that swings in a direction I like, I feel energized. And when one swings the other way, I feel discouraged.
So I answer the phone, and respond to each question, hoping that somewhere, somehow, someone who wants the world to “lean forward” will be energized by my tiny contribution.
