One of my favorite days every two years is Election Day. I’m not sure why but i vividly remember the first time i was eligible to vote. It was the election of 2000. I drove home from college and voted at the same place I went to elementary school. The possibility to affect the future direction of our republic is an awesome responsibility.
I hope my friends in Florida (regardless of your party affiliation) take the opportunity to exercise this sacred duty. It’s a right many have died to preserve for this generation.
A few Quotes to consider as the election season is upon us:
The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
To make democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers.
One who does not vote has no right to complain.
The idea of an election is much more interesting to me than the election itself.
The act of voting is in itself the defining moment.
