Did you vote?

Remember the fateful day when the women in Afghanistan had the privilege to vote? We saw the compelling photo of a woman proudly displaying her inked finger. Evidence that she finally had a voice in electing her leaders. Who knows what consequences she could have faced? She showed great courage. It was a victory for democracy.

I didn't even want to vote today. But I did. After watching news clips of the Democratic convention, I was compelled to ignore my feelings. My vote is simply a message, I'm paying attention.

If you haven't voted today, even if there are no serious run-offs at the ballot, just do it. Let those who are running for office see that you are listening and will be until the election. George would be proud, in-fact, when I showed him my sticker, I think he cracked a smile.

Thanks for stopping by,
