  •  Lots of people who go never "do" anything (14+ / 0-)

    I do "do" things, but whether one does or doesn't, that would have no effect on enjoying the convention.  In the early years of NN, when someone would ask if I was attending as part of an organization, I just said, "myself," or "I blog sometimes on DailyKos."  

    Anyone who enjoys learning about progressive topics of any kind or putting names with faces would love it at NN.  I also frequently see people's comments about how they did not like to initiate conversations or to just go up to somebody and say "hi," but later said after they attended how glad they were to have been there.  

    No one really cares if you have "done" anything.  We are just glad to see you.

    My students were poor and they often came to class hungry. And they knew even in their youth the pain of prejudice… I saw it in their eyes...you never forget what poverty and hatred can do when you see its scars on the hopeful face of a young child.-LBJ
