Election DayNovember 1, 2010 at 11:27 AM | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
This is one of my favorite days of the year. I love to vote. I love having the power to choose my leaders, voice my opinion on bond issues and show my support for democracy. What an amazing privilege we have in this country. And, our system truly does make it easy. The polling places are centrally located in easy-to-find public buildings right in our neighborhoods, and open all day long.
Working at the Literacy Council with many adult learners from many different countries, I have truly come to appreciate our democratic process and the freedom we have to elect our leaders. This really is one of the greatest gifts of living in the United States of America. The results may not always go exactly the way of my choice, but the privilege and right to have a voice and be heard is more exciting than the outcomes. I cannot imagine not voting on Election Day. It’s the most powerful feeling in the world. Please vote. Please join your fellow Americans in the most exciting day of the year.
