Election Day

I voted for you, today.

I voted for me, too-- and for all of those who are too young to vote, and for everyone who will come after us, and for everyone who came before. I voted for all of us.

I voted for our rights, for our opportunities, for health, for jobs, for truth.

I voted for love.

I voted because not voting is unacceptable.

Because my voice has value, because my beliefs have worth, and because I live in a country that gives me the legal right to be heard.

Because people died for my right to vote, because even today some people are still trying to suppress voters.

I voted for all of us.

I hope you did too.
