Just Vote

I didn’t think that I was going to be so emotional about this election. It has been such a clusterf*@k since the beginning and I thought by now I was immune. But here I am teary-eyed. As I have mentioned in a previous post, four years ago, I never really believed that Hillary Clinton had a prayer. And I was dead wrong. And here we are on what is a truly momentous day in American History. It’s still early. I have no idea how the voting is going. All I know is that today is historic. I just read an article about people putting I Voted stickers on Susan B. Anthony’s grave. That brought more tears. It has been not quite 100 years since women got the right to vote in this country. Here you can watch a livestream of men, women and children standing in line to pay their respects to a woman who helped make today possible.

No matter what else you are doing today, make time to vote. We live in a country of great privilege, and this is one of the most vital. I just can’t stress it strongly enough. Vote. Encourage your neighbors and colleagues to vote. Drive someone who can’t get to the polls. Take your children to watch you vote. Be a part of our truly amazing democratic process. Just vote.
