Day 306, November 6

Today is election day.  Today our country decides what kind of nation we want to be.  Today we decide if we will be a nation of makers or a nation of takers.  In many ways, it is a watershed election, a defining moment. 

The repercussions of this election will be felt for years, indeed, decades to come.  Those repercussions will ripple down through our children's, our grandchildren's, our great-grandchildren's lives.  What we choose today cannot be over-emphasized.

As my husband and I voted (we voted early), I rejoiced in the knowledge that we enjoy the freedom to vote for our country's leaders.  Many people in other nations don't enjoy that privilege.  And I wonder why those who do not avail themselves of this right choose to ignore it. 

This I know for sure:  our choices have consequences.  Always.


  1. I'll be so grateful when the election is over and I'm glad I voted early. Sounds like it's a mess at election sites today.

    I am also truly thankful that even though we all don't agree, that we have a choice. Our vote does matter.

  2. Here's a voice form the morning after: I hope our vote did indeed count for something. Never mind, I know it did. It always counts if you stand up for what you believe to be right.
