NaNoPoblano – Day 7 (November 7): Vote
Go NaNoPloblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/) ! And day 7 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/).
This evening, I am tired. I spent the day as part of an interview panel, and if you’ve ever done interviews, you are exhausted at the end of the day without feeling like you’ve really done anything. Always an interesting experience though.
But to my point of thankfulness today.
I am not American, but I can tell you, as one of a group of people who have had the right to vote for less than 100 years (which is longer than other people out there!), and as the beneficiary of many of the rights and freedoms afforded to me through people getting out and exercising their right to vote, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE vote. I know it’s hard sometimes to believe that your vote makes a difference, but it does, and it will. So, there you have it. I am thankful to be able to get out there and put an X on a ballot (at least that’s the way we do it here in Canada – easy-peasy and no confusion!!) So, dammit, just do it!
And I will tell you one final thing – if you don’t vote, don’t complain to me about the outcome!
And now, a picture of a kitten!
