As I write this I’m standing in line to vote. I think this may be the first time I’ve ever had to actually wait in line for more than a few moments. While it may seem like an inconvenience for a lot of people to wait in line, it’s seeming like the people here are more than happy to spend a few minutes of their time to exercise their right to vote. There’s a lot of joking around and the polling staff are actually jovial. One of the ladies told me, “It’s been a long afternoon!” to which I replied, “But in this case, being busy is a good thing.”
Frankly it’s exciting. Our country needs a change and we need people to start caring about it. To often we hear “I didn’t vote so it’s not my fault!” It’s time we all take some accountability in our elected leaders and make sure they actually represent us and our beliefs. We have too little time to be so pedestrian about our future and the future of our grandchildren. It’s so much more important than we might think.
Well, I’m at the door. Let’s do this. #FeelTheBern
