I vote for them. I vote because I have hope in the world we leave for them. I vote because I need to feel that I have the ability to have a voice. I vote because it is my duty to pay attention to more than what goes on in my backyard.
I have election fatigue. I am tired of the signs and sides and commercials and vitriol. I voted via early ballot a few weeks ago, because I knew I could not do the lines this year. I am still excited and I still carry the torch of hope, though, that this process works. I need to know that we can change and go a different direction as a country.
No matter what the outcome of this election, I am still carrying a message in my heart, and I thank the one who put it there. I may be setting myself up for dissapointment, but sometimes you just have to believe.
Yes, we can.
