Someone send me a sticker!
I voted today! (via absentee ballot for the second time...wow...)
My absentee ballot popped into my email inbox last week all the way from suburban Florida and this morning I faxed it into my neighborhood precinct thousands of miles away. Easy as pie.
The lady at the copy shop where I paid 10 cents to vote asked me what I was doing.
"Making my choice for America's president."
"This is voting?"
"Yes, this is voting. You see? I mark this name or this name and then sign it. I can make my choice and hope for the best."
"How do you know the best choice?"
"I don't, but I do research and choose because of what is important to me. I just hope for the best."
"Oh. Americans. So many choices! How burdensome!"
And then I went and bought a coffee to celebrate the freedom to vote as a young woman living in a Comm country. I'm thankful to live in this day and age. I am thankful for my country.
If you have the freedom to, vote in November. And hope for the best. It's your right.
walk slow. xoxo.
