Abrams: "Revenge can be very cathartic"

There are so many things to love about her but this story shows it best for me:

snip

"A few weeks after Stacey Abrams narrowly lost her bid for governor, she spoke to a sold-out crowd in Nashville about her journey from despondency to determination.

'Revenge,” she said, “can be very cathartic.'”


She didn't get down and give up, she fought back in the hardest, most unglamorous way of all: voter registration and GOTV. Not only did she lead the charge for Biden to take Georgia, she and the volunteers got 100,000 MORE people to vote in a RUNOFF!

A true American hero.

6. Cathartic is such an appropriate word:

n. An agent for purging the bowels, especially a laxative.
Purgative; purifying.
In other words, she beat the shit out of them!

10. it's easy to give up...

but Stacey has grit, determination, and the most positivity even after defeat! She has the can-do attitude that all of us need - even when we fail at something, but to not give up! Just like the blacks during MLK's era - fighting for equal rights, to be recognized as humans - after all the slavery history!

You go girl!

12. That's it!

The can-do attitude and positive response to adversity is an example for us all.

was present in the rest of the black leadership in Georgia! All the democrats who went door to door on behalf of Warnock & Ossoff, people who chipped in $ for these candidates, etc - all working to get them elected

11. She is a rising star. She knows how to get it done.

I'm very impressed by this outstanding Democrat, as I'm sure many of us are.

She has come to the aid of her country at a critical time with positive resolve.

19. I know revenge is not her primary motive

Stacey is a great leader and a great Democrat. She knows the Governorship was stolen from her in 2018, but she didn't slink away defeated. She doubled her efforts and worked hard for the Democratic Party for two solid years. Her hard work and her brilliance have brought victory to Georgia Democrats, as well as to all of us.

Thank you Stacey Abrams for all of your hard work!

For the most patriotic reasons possible.
