I am worried and frightened, about what is going to happen in the next two weeks. The election is a big part of it and if I had thought I would have requested Nov. 4th off. I do not want to work that day. I hope and pray that I am wrong, that my fears are ungrounded. I however am not sure that they are.

On the 4th I am packing a bag in case I have to stay at the hospital. This election to me seems more volatile than the ones in the past. Yes, I am worried about who is going to be in office, the state of the economy, if I will ever be able to marry my Honey. Will I be able to get a car that is not falling apart, will the sun come up tomorrow (ok that was tossed in there).

What I am worried about is the outcome of the election. Not who is elected, I will have my say. The reaction of people when the results come in. The hospital that I am working in is full, packed, no empty beds and they just opened up a new wing with 37 beds.

What happens if there is rioting? I hope and pray that this feeling I have is wrong, that there will not be rioting.

One time when the Detroit Tigers won, they almost burned down the whole city. So no matter if Obama wins or loses there could be violence. But a riot is something that would horrify the big O, I hope they realize that going in.

Gosh. I honestly hadn't thought about something like that happening. I really, really hope nothing like that will take place. But, you know, you are right - there are probably areas in which such things may occur. I really hope not, but I suppose you could be right.

I really really hope that is not going to happen. I have however found an artical from a London paper where they are talking about this.
