Today is election day in the United States.

Many of you have already voted.

Those of us who haven’t yet, will go to the poles today.

Jennifer’s friend, Jennifer Yocum, wrote these words:

“The character of our nation will be far less determined by Tuesday’s vote than it will be by the acts of compassion, generosity and peace that every voter and non-voter performs on Wednesday and every day following.”

I agree.

Do vote.

It matters immeasurably.

Then . . .

today and tomorrow and next week and next month and next year . . .

may we be

the nation of character, compassion, generosity and peace we are capable of being.

It matters immeasurably.

One thought on “vote

  1. We are a Nation of Character, I have confidence that everyone will vote responsibly, Here in New Zealand, coverage is amazing! ( Obama is Pres. of choice, Smart “Kiwis”) Womens rights are at stake, Some of us would not be here if it wasn’t for the amazing “Stem Cell” research, Think about this when your vote is cast today! Thanks, susann
