Express yourself!

It's election day, November 6th. It is our time to to vote for what we think is right. The right choice for president, the right propositions. It isn't a right that all Americans automatically received. There was a significant amount of struggle before we got to where we are now. Did you realize that it has only been since 1920 that women could even vote?

Now we are a nation, with much diversity (as you can suppose just by looking at this "vote here" sign).

When I dropped off my ballot, the polls were pretty quiet...just the volunteers staffing the church gym.  Somehow I was expecting lines of people.

“Have you ever stopped to ponder the amount of blood spilt, the volume of tears shed, the degree of pain and anguish endured, the number of noble men and women lost in battle so that we as individuals might have a say in governing our country?  Honor the lives sacrificed for your freedoms. Vote.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich
