Drill, Drill, Drill

Eve Ensler (author of the vagina monolgues) on Sarah Palin and feminism.

Palin bothers me, moreso than McCain. I simply disagree with McCain's policies but Palin's disregard for select parts of the constitution and basic womens rights stemming from her personal religious beliefs really gets to me. It gets to me because she is a woman. It makes me sad and angry all at once. She has every right to believe what she would like, but when that encroaches on my rights she's gone too far.

But what can I do? I can't vote this year because I don't yet have my citizenship. For now I have absolutely no say in the country that my son and future children will no doubt grow up in.

I am a 24 year old British stay at home mother to a two year old boy. Married to a U.S. soldier and currently living in Germany.

I have seen the Vatican from the very top of St Peter's Basilica, the mud in the World War I trenches outside Ypres. I have walked through Montmartre side streets bustling with people in the evening, gotten lost in the streets of Greenwich Village NYC, run through cornfields on the Welsh border and sat outside with a cup of tea watching fireflies in the fields of the outer Chicago suburbs.

I have held the hands of others through addiction, fear, suicide, despair and come out the other side. I have left everything behind to begin anew.
I have fought mental illness and walked through snow in the mountains of the lake district, England. I have explored the morgue in the bowels of an abandoned hospital on a summer evening, climbed to the top of scaffolding on the outside of a five floor warehouse to look at the city lights of Nottingham at night and I have watched the sun setting on the Texas horizon.

I have held my son's tiny hand through the plastic window on an isolette in the NICU ward. Walked, speaking only in whispers, through the catacombs beneath the ground on the outskirts of Rome and seen the fireworks over Heidelberg castle.
