As we wait for election returns, the wrapper on the Nun Bus is being removed. We left the extra food and office supplies with Sister Pat Rogers at the St. Ann Center for Women, which was our last stop, where they were encouraging voters and canvassers with a party. Materials are being sent back to the NETWORK office in Washington, DC. It seems that Melissa Etheridge has rented the bus for next week.
Eleven states, 58 nuns, over 5,000 media hits (including an interview of me on WTMJ at the end of this post). I was only on the Bus since Wisconsin but the tour started in September. At every stop we were met by cheering crowds of faithful folks who have been doing the hard work of political engagement. We would speak a bit to encourage and thank them....
