Much of our political process in the US leaves me worn out, cynical, and crabby. The mudslinging, the selective memories, the fear mongering...ugh.
But on election day, I can't help but be buoyed by the passion for the process. The name calling, the arguments, the mean spirited "jokes"...they all turn into a single rallying cry "GO VOTE!". It's beautiful to watch everyone come together, to share in the common purpose of exercising our right and responsibility as citizens.
Vote I did. I hope you did too.
