Thanks 5

November 9, 2011 at 9:10 am (Gratitude) ()

Technically it’s after midnight, but I haven’t gone to bed yet so I think this counts.

Tonight I am thankful for democracy. I really do love voting. When the lady collecting ballots at the drop off station tonight (our county votes all by mail, but I refuse to pay to vote, even if it’s just the cost of a stamp) thanked me for voting I almost started crying.

Now perhaps that has more to do with the rest of my day going worse than yesterday, which was pretty darn bad. But still, it moved me. And that’s all the eloquence I can manage at the moment.
