BECAUSE WE CAN
Without fear that stormtroopers will appear at our doorstep in the evening
Without having to look over our backs
Without “disappearing” into the night.
BECAUSE WE HAVE A CONSTITUTION THAT SAYS WE CAN – THINK ABOUT THAT
On this 21st day of 2013, we as a nation give our best wishes to the President as he starts his second term and hope that he will lead with strength, wisdom, intellect, compassion, and magnanimity..
Lest we forget those who fought for our great country and lost everything including their names.
Some people were denied the chance to vote for hundreds of years. When the chance finally came after enduring brutal oppression for decades, the newly enfranchised came in orderly lines in the sweltering hot sun that stretched as far as the eye could see to make sure their voices were heard.
In our own country, the right to vote has not always be available to all.
But we have it now; don’t toss away what others have died for to give you: Your Right To Vote
This election day will be tough for some of us, with Hurricane Sandy having devastated so many communities on the East Coast, but a strong national government is seeing them through this crisis. I hope that the victims of this national tragedy will be able to endure this additional burden and also cast their vote. It is so important.
