Today is election day, and the excitement I feel is almost like Christmas. I had trouble sleeping last night because I couldn’t wait to see how things were going to turn out today. I do have class today, so that will keep me busy most of the afternoon. I’m going to get myself dressed and start standing in line at my polling place here in the next hour or so. According to the news, the lines are long. Supposed to be a record turn out here on the left coast. It’s so exciting! I was talking to a 19 year old woman that I work with – this is her first presidential election. She is very up on the issues. I was so impressed, and I told her so. We are on the cusp of major change in our country. Shattering the glass ceiling in one way or another – either the first African-American president, or woman vice-president (although I hope not the latter).
So please go VOTE!
