We’re one week out from election day. We’re one week from that moment when everyone in this country gets to make a decision. A decision about who they are, what they believe in and where they want our country to go. A lot people will decide that they don’t want to be anyone, that making their voice heard is too much of a hassle. Others will decide that it’s not worth it to even try. That the state of politics is so dismal, and every politician so awful, that they’ll just sit this one out.
And others will decide to vote. And they will decide who you can marry, whether your drinking water is clean, how much you pay for healthcare, your house, your food; where your sons, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers are sent to war; and for what reasons; and the list goes on.
If you’re reading this it probably means you have at least a passing interest in the State of the State and the Nation. If you’re reading this, VOTE. Tell your friends to vote. Pledge to vote. It’s your choice in every sense of the word.
