Please Vote Today

00000126

Please vote today. But don't vote because your family tells you to, because a celebrity tells you to, because I tell you to.

Vote because in the not so distant past, great battles were waged and great sacrifices made for our right to cast a ballot. Vote because in the not so distant present, many citizens of the world are still denied that right. Vote because we are blessed to live when and where we do.

Vote because you can.

    I can’t wait! Of course today is the first day it’s rained in probably 9 months, but who cares! By the way, I’m going to post that caldo verde soup recipe (hopefully later in the week after I make it and can get a pic).

    I agree! Even though we can’t vote in this election Canadians are nevertheless glued to the TV, and on the edge of our seats. The CBC is airing National Coverage of the election all day and night and even high school students have been overheard discussing this most historic event.

    Wonderfully said and so very true. Have you seen Iron Jawed Angels? After seeing that movie I vowed to never take my right to vote for granted.

  5. Grace@PoeticHome Says:

    AMEN! You are absolutely right about our beautiful right to vote. I just cast my vote and can’t wait for the (hopefully good) results!
