Your Vote Is A Privilege

20121106-145130.jpg

In Ohio, we’ve had our fill of political speeches and commercials, and of closed roads and secret service barricades.  Post-election silence is just around the bend.  Regardless of your choice – vote.

The first year women were allowed to vote in the USA my grandmother cast her ballot.  Never forgetting a vote is a privilege not a right; Grandma took her children with her to vote.  Years later, my Mom took her little girls behind the curtain of the election booth.  My sister has done the same with her children.  Less than 100 years ago, none of this could have happened.

Your voice matters.  Vote!
