Democratic National Convention, Charlotte NC

 Being a Pluralist and an inclusive individual, I do have identifications but have no boundaries; nothing divides me and another person. I watched the Republican National Convention last week and this week, I will be watching some of the DNC proceedings as I have a big event next Tuesday in Dallas.

The diversity of audience and speakers makes you feel home with the DNC, and I wish Republican Party also works on being inclusive, although there is no such policy to exclude anyone, but the leadership rhetoric keeps most people away and now their platform really does push people out, no one at the party cares about inclusiveness.

The speakers at DNC were mesmerizing, I watched every speaker, and each one of them was good and had a heart touching story. Gov. Lincoln Chafee of RI, reflected pretty much my views, I am a Moderate Republican and he was one too, he could not relate with the party anymore and went on to become independent. Ted Strickland, former Gov of Ohio delivered an impactful speech. The San Antonia Mayor Julian Castro moved the people, he truly is a rising star and has great communication skills like Obama, as a matter of fact, he has similar mannerisms. It was an incredible speech, and Michelle Obama capped it off well, sharing about the man Obama, what he is made of. She moved everyone in the audience. I had really not watched her speak before; but she is one hell of a good speaker.

The only criticism I have was a sentence uttered by Julian Castro - when he said my mother worked hard - she wanted me to hold this microphone instead of the broomstick, as if holding the broomstick was a lesser value.  He could have said, she is joyous for his transition from broomstick to microphone.
All the speeches were uplifting.
