So I said to myself, "Self... this would be a great thing to do."
So I did.
Now I'm saying to myself, "Self it would be good for you to elaborate and maybe go a little deeper than just a status update each day."
So I am.
My FB Thankful status update for the day...
I'm thankful that I live in a country where my voice can be heard. Thankful that I can go out and vote today. I hope you'll get out there too.
I went and voted today. Without fear or worry. For this right...No...
For this, privilege I am very thankful.
Do you realize that there are billions.....BILLIONS of people in this world who cannot do what I (and hopefully you) just did today?
All I had to do was walk out to my car, hop in and drive about a block away. I could have walked but I was picking up my mom and taking her with me so she could cast her vote as well.
In my area there was a slight problem with the cards. Making it so we had to wait a slightly longer amount of time to cast my vote. I was there for maybe 10 maybe 15 minutes tops.
One of the poll managers was apologizing for the wait.
I am so thankful that's all I had to contend with.
I am so very thankful that I didn't have to walk miles and stand in line for hours maybe even days to vote.
I am incredibly thankful that I didn't have to risk my life in order for my voice to be heard.
Because there are people out there who do.
