Our election is over and the people's voices have been heard. We chose our president. Colette of JamericanSpice wrote a very moving post about the right to vote. I have always encouraged my children to vote, so I was glad to see such moving words. Continued .....
We are lucky as Americans that we have choices. Our forefathers have made many sacrifices so that we can enjoy the liberties we take for granted daily without fear. Some of the powers that be this year tried to suppress our votes. Recently political platforms were run trying to remove our right to family planning and equal pay among other things. There were those who wanted to take away some of our choices. Thankfully they did not get their way. We were heard.
I may not agree with everyone's choice. Sometimes I may rethink my own when the outcome is different than I thought it would be, but I have a choice. Colette is so right. It is a gift and to not take it is foolish. I voted.
