Last week, my husband and I voted (by mail). We don't take this lightly. We discussed the proposed amendments and the candidates.
There is much wrong in our country. But there is much more right. Sometimes we forget that. Sometimes I forget that. And then I listen to news stories of life in other countries and I remember how blessed we are, those of us fortunate enough to live in America.
We have the right to vote. We have the right to dissent. We have the right to make our voices heard. We have the right to move from one state to another. We have the right to worship as we see fit.
Joy for today: being an American.
