Waking up today, there was a new President Elect, it was very exciting. At school, the kids all came in chanting "Obama!" and it was so cool to see these 12, 13 and 14 year olds all hyped up about POLITICS! It is a very exciting time in our lives to be a part of this election. I am not saying which way I voted, Democrat, Republican, whatever... just the act of walking in to that booth, looking at the choices before me. Knowing that each of us has the privilege, the responsibility, the power to make that decision and influence the outcome. It overwhelms me. I think of other places in this world that people are controlled by their government. Not here. Not me. So today, I am just relishing in the fact that I VOTED. I went and let my opinion on who should be the president of the United States of America be counted. Win or lose, my candidate got my vote. My voice was heard. It wasn't that many years ago that women didn't have the right to vote. Not at all. I don't take that right for granted. Now, look who is president. Now that is something you don't see every day.
