30 Days of Thanks...Day 6
Day 6: I am thankful I have the right to vote.
Black people didn't always have it, and women didn't always have it.
I don't understand why people wouldn't exercise this right, since there are so many who fought and died so that we could have it. That is reason alone to go and do it.
I am also thankful the voting place is within walking distance so I got up, made my stroll, and cast my vote. There wasn't much of a big line. I anticipate the lines will come more towards lunch time or after people get off work.
There is so much at stake, particularly with this election, so no one can afford to think, "My vote doesn't count." Every vote does count, so make it count.
