Marlins Will Soar - by Scott Stapp
Tom Brokaw: Tonight, we bring you the story of a brave Utah man whose courageous conquest to the polls serves as a reminder for us all to not take our freedoms for granted.
Jeff Stauffer is a 31 year old, white, middle class citizen who has never backed down from health challenges in his life including: getting his tonsils out, eczema, and several colds. And today, on Election Day, he wasn’t about to let ANY ailments keep him from voting.
(Shot of Jeff): “I woke up on Tuesday feeling groggy. I don’t know if I got enough sleep last night or TOO MUCH? Anyway, wasn’t feeling great—kinda had a headache. Not fun.”
But, calling on the spirit of his pioneer ancestors, he put on his basketball shorts and a t-shirt and got in his car, a moderately priced Honda Accord, and began his journey.

49 seconds and one city block later he arrived at the polling location, got out of his car and walked all the way into an Elementary school, braving the germs associated with hundreds of snot-nosed kids.

He waited in line for possibly four minutes and cast his vote. Victory!
(Jeff): “I know people have their own Everests to climb. I just hope people out there can see what I did today and maybe feel like they don’t have it so bad. Just reach out and grab life by the horns!”
Tom Brokaw: What a story. (grins)
I haven’t watched the video, but this is my favorite song right now. CHVRCHES : “The Mother We Share”
I have never loved anything as much as I love this.
If you could instagram a music video, this is what it would look like. This song is enchanting.

“I see Gatorade, Powerade, Snapple, Lipton, but I don’t see any Fruitopia. Can you check the back to see if you have any?”
“Sir, I’m not sure what that is.”
“Well, CLYDE, it says on your nametag that you’ve been proudly serving this community since 1989. How do you NOT know what Fruitopia is?? Strawberry Passion Awareness, The Grape Beyond, Beachside Blast? ARE YOU SERIOUS?”
“I’m sorry, we don’t carry that.”
The rage builds. I try to tip over the entire beverage aisle, but it doesn’t budge. “Help me push this shelf over, Clyde, it’s actually pretty heavy,” I grunt.
“Sir, I’m not going to help you destroy my grocery store. In fact, I’m going to have to ask you to leave.”
I grab a bottle of Snapple iced tea and smash it violently at Clyde’s feet as tears begin to stream down my face. “Don’t you see? You are doing your part in tearing my childhood away from me! It’s gone, it’s all gone!”
Clyde is a caring man; he holds me against his apron as I sob. “There there, it’s okay, son,” he consoles me. “Now c’mon, I will show you where the Gushers are, and the gummy frogs, and the Funyuns, Corn Nuts, and Gobstoppers. It’s not all gone.”
