In fifteen days, we will have an election of historic proportions. Two important historical happenings accompany this election: the nomination of the first African-American man to the position of president and the nomination of the first Republican woman to the position of vice-president. There is polarization and disdain flowing pretty evenly from a lot of areas. It’s a shame, in my opinion, that we cannot simply enjoy the history of this moment. I took my daughter to see Hillary Rodham Clinton when she came to my town to give a stump speech. I wasn’t supporting HRC, but it was a chance for my daughter to participate in history and know that anything is possible when you work hard and believe in success. I would love to take her to see Sarah Palin, too, but Ms. Sarah isn’t going to be anywhere near my neighborhood anytime soon 🙂 As for Sen. Obama, he has enough supporters without me clogging up his venues 🙂
Please, whatever your thoughts and ideology, just exercise your RIGHT to vote. And continue to fight hard to protect this valuable freedom we have enjoyed for so long. Thank you; that is all.
