Topic: Making Changes
"I've seen 'em on TV. I know what they are saying. I'm not interested in either one. I'll just see what happens." That came from a middle-aged woman who opened her door to my attempt to engage her in a conversation about early voting last week. My stomach was already churning from the reek of tobacco coming from inside the residence. I found the repulsion of the woman's attitude more repulsive than the tobacco.
While I accept that everyone has a different idea about how to achieve "liberty and justice for all," the idea that individuals in a free society would choose to believe that voting is not a responsibility--that's what upsets me far more than the ones who have views far different from mine on the issues that are high on my list.
I voted yesterday and encourage you to do so. Just in case something happens that prevents you from going to the polls on election day. It's an opportunity I never want to miss. What's more, I plan to be using my little set of wheels to get others to the polls on election day. Maybe you can consider doing this, as well.
