I found myself wanting to say, "because you don't always get rewarded for doing what you are supposed to do." Because voting is what you are supposed to do. Voting is your right as an American. Voting is something people fought so hard for all those years ago. For a voice...to be heard. (Trying to explain that to The Monster probably would have gone over as well as explaining taxes to Sleeping Beauty went lat week.)
But, no matter who you choose. No matter who you don't. Just go vote. (Dang, I should write for a campaign!)
Make your voice heard; even if it is just you hearing that voice as you bubble in next to your voice. Stand tall and be proud. Today let's all be proud to live in America. Today let's all be united as one...united in our believe that everyone should at least have the opportunity to be heard.
Because if you think about it, that really is our prize. We GET to have a voice when so many others aren't so lucky.
