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.
