So I was woken up today by my stepmother she said "get dressed there is something upstairs" I replied "what?" and she said just to come up when i am dressed. I go through my head of what all this could be about. Was someone dead? Am I being kicked out. No, after a few moments my mind sets on the idea that this is about the POW bracelet. Some back story is needed for this tale, during Vietnam the US government sold bracelets with a soldiers name and date of capture. These bracelets were available to sell to people who wanted to pray, or just show their hopes for that person to come back alive and safe. My step mother got a bracelet which read "John McCain". She was watching TV one day 3 or 4 years after receiving the bracelet and saw that some American soldiers were returning home after a long capture. John McCain's name was on the screen, she was shocked. After many attempts to give it back to him, she finally just held on to the bracelet believing one day she would be able to give it to him. So back to this morning, I went up stairs and saw a TV crew in my house interviewing my step mom, and the story on the front page of the Cincinnati Enquirer. So now it is basically set up that we will all get the opportunity to meet the presidential candidate and present a bracelet that was made for him while he was in Vietnam over 3 decades ago. Before you all jump to the conclusion that either my family or I am doing this as a boost for him as a candidate, I must explain that my step mom, who talked to many of his staff members wants this occasion to be a private one, especially because she is bringing her father, who was also a POW and a serviceman during Vietnam. I really am excited as how many people get the chance to see a presidential nominee in person. Now I really doubt this meeting will sway my opinion for who I think is the best candidate, but one thing I have always admired about McCain is that you can see that he is a pretty good man. Yes he may have some questionable political beliefs, but he also having been through many tough life experiences has had a good aura around him. This is not about giving this to the presidential nominee John McCain, but the veteran/soldier/man John McCain, and I applaud my step mom and family for trying to keep this as less about politics and more about the human spirit.
