A Mother's Concern on the Eve of Election Day

Pin It
Today is a day that will go down in history.  No matter what side you are on, or what belief system and/or political party you subscribe to, I think we can all agree that today's election is monumental.  Never before has the United States seen an election like this. And I'm scared as hell.
 
I know the type of world that I want my children to grow up in.  One that is free of hatred... Where people show compassion to others. Where we follow the words of Jesus and do unto others as we would have them do unto us.  A world that does not discriminate based on skin color, religion, or sexual orientation.  Where man and woman- black, white, or brown- are seen as equal.

This election has brought so much to light.  We've all seen it.  You know you have.  You've seen your Facebook friends posting internet memes and bogus, slanted news reports about their candidate. The internet has taken on a life of its own, tilting "breaking news" to whatever side they favor. It's maddening.

All I know is this....

Every vote counts. The future of our nation is on this election. What way do you want it to go? Get out and vote, America... Especially you, women.  So many were beaten and tortured to ensure your right to vote. Don't squander it. Get out there and vote, let your voice be heard.
