I voted on the first day of early voting. I was recruited by my nephew to come volunteer at the polls today. It’s been an experience, and it’s been a good one! I’ve met some new friends – I’m always open to new experiences, new friends and new things.
My sentiments on the election, whatever happens it’s going to be God’s will. I pray God gives us the sense to cope with it and keep on. Life is going to go on no matter who gets elected.
A lot of people – our forefathers – fought for us. People laid down their lives for us to have this right, so why not use it? Let your voice be heard. Because tomorrow I don’t want to hear nobody complaining.
