I voted today for the first time EVER!! How exciting is that?! Honestly, as I was in the booth, I was stricken by the absurdity of growing up. I no longer had to walk in with my parents, but could make my own decisions that could impact the future of the country. I don’t take that civic duty lightly and am elated that I got the chance to participate in democracy for the first time.
“Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
I really felt that today and hope everyone else did too!!
