Vote, Vote, Vote

by Terri Wagner

It's a scared duty. Considering the special knowledge we have of America's true mission, we simply cannot be found guilty of not casting our vote for our candidate. It always seems that every election lately is the BIG one. Doesn't matter if it's a REGULAR one, we owe our ancestors who came here to vote to keep America safe for generations to come.

We might not all agree on how best to accomplish safety. But we can and must vote. I'll be voting early. And I have to tell you, where I live, the polling booth will be quiet, serious, and clean. That's just the way it is in a small town.

I don't envy those of you who may have to run a gauntlet to vote. And I sincerely hope none of you run into intimidation.

Mostly I just want you all to be able to stand with me when we stand before Heavenly Father and say...I voted as my conscience dictated to me. I "kept the faith."

  1. Good for you Terri. It felt great to be able to cast my ballot. I know too many people who refuse to register to vote and that makes me soooo sad...and a little resentful, because they tend to be the biggest complainers. Voting is not only a privilege, it is a responsibility. Thanks for your great reminder. hugs~

  2. Just noticed you said it was a "scared" duty and not a "sacred" duty. It kind of made me giggle because it is a little scary sometimes!
