I had mixed feelings about voting today. I didn't think it really mattered if I voted or not. Then I started to see all the coverage of what people were doing just to be able to vote: standing in long lines, voting by flashlight, etc. As I sat in my warm apartment with power, I knew there was no excuse for me not to vote. I am so lucky to live in a country where we do have a voice and are able to vote freely. I wish our country were not so divided on so many important issues, but at least I know I am making my choices heard. I even got a little teary at how nice the volunteers were and how everyone was so proud to be voting.
So, if you have not voted yet, there is still time. Get out there and do it!
