I voted!

And if you are a U.S. citizen eligible to vote today, I hope that you will too.

Because back in the 1770s, people fought and died to establish this country so that they could have a say in how this country is run.

And because others fought and died to make sure that African Americans could be citizens and vote in the 1860s, though only the men got the right to vote then.

And because women protested, were sent to prison, and were force-fed and badly beaten in order to make sure that women in this country had a voice in how the country was governed. And that happened less than 100 years ago.

And if you decide NOT to vote, then please (a) remember that is also a way of voting, because you let other people make the choice for you and (b) don't complain about the results or who's in office, because you didn't even TRY to do your part.

Heck, even I had strong feelings about your governor's race. Glad it worked out! :)

It's amazing when you find out what people went through in order to win us the right!
