Vote 2012


Another presidential election is upon us and this one is as important as elections past.  Oh, others may have been historical—the election of the first African-American president— and others may have been controversial, such as the 2000 presidential election between then Vice President Al Gore and Texas Governor George W. Bush, but each one was and is important.

There is no other time in which we pay as much homage to the civil rights movement as when we freely and safely enter voting booths and pull the lever of our choice.  Yes, I said of our choice, our forefathers faced life and death so all would have the freedom to vote for whomever we desired whether that candidate is a majority favorite or not.

As one writing this article from Hurricane ravaged New York City, I am witnessing the determination of many to make their voices heard no matter the obstacles.  Although they are not fighting against dogs, water hoses, and police officers they are fighting against frustration, depression, and loss.  It would be easy to blame the devastation of Hurricane Sandy for ones absentee at the booths but many are choosing to execute their top civic duty.   I am not here to say whom to vote for but to say get out and vote.  David used a small smooth stone to take down a giant and one small pebble can make a far spreading ripple, one vote can make a difference.
