30 Days of a Thankful Heart {Day 6} Freedom

6 Nov

I voted!

No, I will not reveal who I voted for.  I learned that lesson the first time I voted in 2000.  It can turn ugly when one reveals who they vote for.  The important thing is that I voted.

We have the privilege and duty in our country to freely vote for who we want and even if we feel like our vote might not make a difference, we need to make our voice heard.

While this country has many problems, it is a country built on freedom, and I freely choose to vote and help decide the future of the U.S.

I am grateful to have the freedom to vote without fear of retribution, intimidation, or worse.  It is great to see long, long lines of voters turning out to help exercise our freedom.  Aaron and I have discussed that the future of voting may change with the rapid rise and prevalence of social media.  Imagine if all you had to do was click “Like” for President in 2016!

What about you?  Did you vote?  What do you think about the future of voting in this country?

Gracefully~~Heather
