Today is election day and I have to tell you that I am very excited!!! Not because I think my candidate is going to win, but because so many people actually care enough to participate in the process.
This could be the largest turn out for an election in my lifetime and it excites me to know that so many people will be willing to stand in line, possibly for hours, so that their vote can be one of many to decide our country’s leadership.
When this election is over there will surely be those that think the majority is made up entirely of idiots and that our country is headed for certain doom. And it very well may be, but at least it was our choice, which is more than many people around the world can say.
Others will celebrate and see it as a new day for our country, and it may be. It will none the less be historical. We will either have our first black president or first woman vice-president. Either way it is exciting to know that we are becoming more equal in our society.
Go and VOTE!!! If you don’t vote, you have NO right to complain, because it could have been different if you had.
See you at the polls.
