45. 24-Year Old Female Grad Student in New York

I was in a Barnes & Noble with my boss. Barack stopped in while we were perusing books on the second floor. I guessed he had a speaking engagement nearby. He was standing next to us and all kinds of people were coming up to him and telling him that they supported his policies, telling him their stories, asking him questions. His presence was very calming and he answered everyone's questions thoughtfully.

I woke up understanding why people like him, and thinking to myself that I should try to read more about this election and maybe even vote.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea.
