History in the Making

I did it. My duty is done - for now, anyways. Yesterday, I went out and early voted for the candidate I think will whip this country back into shape. Who do I think that candidate is? Wouldn't you like to know! Texans get to do what's called the "Texas Two-step" which just means we get to vote twice (the primary and the caucus). I'll be back on March 4th to vote in the caucus. It feels good...exercising my right to vote. I'm not one of those who doesn't vote because "my vote don't count anyway". Please. It is my honor - my duty - to go out and vote. It is my right...the right that so many people risked their lives - and some even died - for me to have. Nuh uh. Their fighting will not be in vain.

This is an exciting (and historical) time to vote, or am I the only one who believes this? I mean, we've had African Americans and women go for the presidency before, but Clinton and Obama have gotten closer than the ones before them. This is the closest this country has gotten to having its first female or black president. Whether you like the candidates or not, you've got to admit this is history in the making (and perfect background for a book - hmm...). Come November, the Democratic candidate will either be a woman or African American - and they both have a very good chance at becoming our 44th president. When my future kids read about this in their history books, I could tell them I voted in that historical election. I could add this to my "I was there when" stories to tell my grandchildren (even great grandchildren). Come on, you gotta admit that's cool.

Thanks! Zoe's awesome. I was on her waiting list for about 2 months, but it was worth the wait.

Rae, the blog looks beautiful! And I'm a firm believer in voting. It's kind of tough to complain about the world, if we don't take the smallest steps to do what we can. Cheers!
