What can I say this morning?
We’re up early, sipping coffee, and getting ready to go to our local polling place and cast our vote. What an honor it is to have a vote! I take that responsibility very seriously. Not voting is unthinkable.
We watched President Obama’s campaign speech in New Hampshire yesterday. Then we watched the rally in Philadelphia. Positive, uplifting, filled with hope.
What a contrast with the dark, hopeless, angry rhetoric coming from the other candidate. If I was still sitting on the fence (impossible) that would have sealed the deal for me.
When a candidate says, as Trump did yesterday, that if he doesn’t win “I will consider this the single greatest waste of time, energy…and money” – you know he was never doing this to truly make a positive difference. He was never doing it as a public service.
It was all about ego.
Okay. I’ve said enough, and heaven knows I’ve written about this election many times over the course of the last year. It has been imperative to speak out. And if I’ve lost some readers along the way, so be it. This election is too important. Period. No regrets, not a one.
If you haven’t voted, do.
We’re going out to breakfast afterward to celebrate this day.
And I’m going to stop, breathe, and remind myself that I have the honor and privilege of casting a vote for the first woman President of the United States.
