is going to make you angry..
But even knowing this, I was not prepared for a conversation I had at Thanksgiving dinner with my brother-in-law, Henry, who has lived most of his life in a home for the mentally disabled and although now in his 40s, has the intelligence level of a 6-year-old.
“Obama saved me,” he said to me out of the blue.
“What do you mean?”
“I voted for him for president and now he’s saving me.”
I was taken aback by these words, since Henry had no idea who Obama was, or what a president might be, and would be unable to fill out a registration form let alone get to the polling place by himself.
So I asked him how he knew that and how he had registered and cast his vote. In halting, impeded speech he told me that the people who take care of him at the home filled out “the papers” to register him to vote, told him how Obama cared for him, even taught him the Obama chants, and then took him to the polling place to vote. They did the same for all of the mentally disabled patients in their care, approximately 60 in all.
How anyone can identify with a political party that resorts to this kind of despicable behavior is beyond me.
This does not mean, necessarily, letting down your guard and pouring your heart out about how much you love your grandmother. The whole professional vs. personal ratio also has to be calculated with your topic and target audience in mind. A good rule of thumb is: if you wouldn't say it in an email to a client, it shouldn't go up on your company's blog.
As you get more comfortable with the process, you'll develop your own unique blogging style!
