People say until you walk in my shoes for a while then caution on what you say about someone. Being a candidate perhaps has the broadest emotional experience possible meeting thousands of citizens who have thousands of personalities and opinions. Harder still is the family who lives with a candidate for public office, the countless hours and days of endless campaigning before any short break, then cherishing those moments void of political activity.
Such was a moment captured by Mona on November 3, 2012 just days before Election Day as Nadine and I stopped for a few minutes, exhausted and seeking each other to lean on spiritually and physically.
Only other candidates can relate to this moment but I wanted to share a glimpse of the commitment committed candidates endure running an aggressive, purposeful, winning campaign and moments of family life.
