Thank you for Voting

Thank you for Voting

Too many people fought too hard to make sure that all citizens of all colors, races, ethnicities, genders and abilities can vote to think that not voting somehow sends a message. ~ Luis Gutierrez

From all accounts of early voting and stories from polls in various states, today my fellow Americans voted in larger numbers than they have in quite sometime.  No matter who you voted for, thank you for voting.  This experiment in democracy known as the United States of America only works if we participate.  To sit back and ignore the governance of your country, state, county, city, family and very person is to give up control over all of that to someone else.  So again, thank you for voting today and have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
