Even if you think "refreshing politics" is an oxymoron, you may appreciate the following video as a break from the horrendous news from Afghanistan. I've mentioned before that David Freiheit is running for Parliament in Canada, and while I can't vote for him, or support him financially (Canadian election laws about funds from foreign countries), I loved this 12-minute video on his experiences going door-to-door and talking with fellow Canadians. It's positive and encouraging—something we all need right now.

"This is not social media. You don't get to respond to that type of incident with a sassy, snarky response and then you go on with your day and hope that your sassy response gets likes and retweets. These are members of your community. If you get elected, you have to represent these people anyhow, regardless of the fact that they feel they are so politically unaligned from you that they can't even stand to get your name on the ballot. You have to represent them. You have to understand them, and you have to know what their concerns are."
