Happy Birthday! It is my birthday (6/7/1954), as well, and I truly hope for Biden to be President on my next birthday.

David, Happy Birthday from a fellow Ohioan❣ I am so grateful for all you have done (books, videos, substack, Blue OH) to help us understand the dangers facing us and what we can do to preserve our democracy and achieve equity/justice for ALL.

Birthday present: Early this morning I took the step of expanding my ability to register Dems through texting with Field Team 6. I've been doing about 110/day since Dec. Using their very clear directions, I set up a paid Google Voice acct today that will allow me to text an additional 200 people/day, about 300/day total. I can do this even while holding a sleeping baby. I encourage others to get involved, at least with the free version (only 15 min/day).

A group I founded that started over 2 yrs ago. We meet 3x a week doing the tasks to save democracy. There is also a song there on our website about January 6th that needs to be shared. Because it really DID happen. Thanks, David. You are truly making a difference. Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday! Not only do we have to think of ourselves but our children and grandchildren, too. They all deserve to live in a Democracy! Thank you for “The Footprint “.

Happy Birthday... and many more happy birthdays to those boys who are with you in the photo. They are the ones (and the young ones in my family) who keep me trying to use my footprint! I will be helping to register voters at the Underground Railroad Freedom Center on John Lewis National day of Commemoration and ACTION!

Happy Birthday, David... I beat you by three days and a few years... 6/4/1955 is mine, and I hope to celebrate my 70th feeling better about the future...

Thanks again for what you do!
