I have always loved election day. Those years when the election falls on my birthday have been my favorites. That was, until this year. My voting excitement dimmed as the country tore it’s citizens apart and fights broke out where free speech should have been embraced. In fact, I’ve been dreading my election birthday this year. But today I took my ballot to the drop box in front of the courthouse. I was one of many, a constant flow of Americans with ballots in hand, and a bit of my faith was restored.
I didn’t care who they voted for, only that they had the freedom to cast their ballots.
Who wins the presidential election is less important than how we treat each other.
It matters that we love without that being dependent on our agreement. We can choose if we will allow the election to separate us from others, or if we’ll learn to serve our communities with our neighbors no matter what their political affiliations.
So, let’s celebrate! I’ll be giving away the mug and chocolates, in the picture above, to one of my subscribers. Check out the link at the right side of this page. The winner will be drawn randomly at noon on November 19th.
All subscribers who share this blog will be entered twice into the drawing! Leave a comment or send me a message to make sure I catch your share.
The winner is Heidi G.
