Rock Your Vote
Today is a big day. It's Election Day which means that it's the one day that our voices can be heard loud and clear. It's the one day that we can each take a moment to do something for ourselves without any guilt. We can cast a vote for the future.
I don't like to sound preachy, but now more than ever, it's important that we voice our opinions, in perhaps the most tangible way possible -- in the voting booth. Whatever your politics are and with whatever hot button issues are important to you, let you voice be heard.
And help out. There are lots of people who can't get to their polling places easily. Give your neighbor a ride if they need one. It's not a big deal to you -- you're going there anyway -- and it can make a huge difference in not only your life, but in the lives of everyone you know and love.
This is Charlie's first time voting. He cast his absentee ballot a few weeks ago. He's away at college so he couldn't go to his polling place to do the deed in person. I wish he could have. It's a meaningful experience and one we shouldn't take for granted.
And after you vote, order in and watch the returns.
