Election Day!

Today is election day in the USA. Democracy only works for us if we participate. I hope everyone is registered to vote... and is going to do so today!

People sometimes say they don't believe their vote counts. They don't believe their vote makes a difference. So they don't vote.

If a system is broken, the way to fix it is to participate in it and work to change it. Simply ignoring the system is like ignoring the problem.

Our country has a boat load of problems right now. We all need to focused on addressing and fixing these problems. Participating in our society as informed citizens is the way we do that.

Ignorance is not an excuse. Nor, is laziness. When we don't pay attention... bad things happen!

Get out there and VOTE! Tomorrow, we'll see what the future will bring.
