Yes We Can?

on November 5, 2008

I sure hope so.

I woke up this morning amazed at the steps forward America took last night. But we’re not done yet. There is still a ton of bigotry in this world, just look at all the states that imposed (or re-imposed) the ban on gay marriage. Can you imagine paying taxes to a country and then that country not letting you have the same rights and liberties as another??? It just infuriates me so much — but I do have a renewed faith in this country. It won’t come easy and it won’t come swift, but if the past has shown us anything… it will come.

So stay involved and stay active and participate in your democratic process! You are more than just one vote. Last night I was three votes. My sister wasn’t just one vote, she was two. Never think that you can’t make a difference.
