I’ve always voted. I don’t recall ever missing an election. I’ve always thought of it as something I get to do because I’m an American; I live in a democracy.
But that was before today. Today on Time Goes By, there’s a post entitled “Our Right and Duty to Vote.” It’s about what women — American women — went through to get the right to vote.
From now on, those brave women will be foremost in my heart and mind whenever I cast a vote. And I will never pass up an opportunity to exercise the right they won for me.
