One Voice

I voted today. I wasn't planning to post, but I've changed my mind. Each one of us has a voice, and if we don't voice our opinions, that voice will eventually be silenced. It will be drowned out by what the media says and what others say. [I masked my face because when I vote, my skin color or gender doesn't matter. I'm a person with a voice wanting to be heard in a sea of people.]
You have to know what you believe. If you know what you believe, no one else can come in and sway you. Find your voice.

Each time you speak up, it gets easier. You become more confident in yourself. I left the poll with a smile on my face because regardless of the outcome, I was heard. This quote sums up things perfectly, "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do." -Edward Everett Hale

We may not have a law degree that permits us to participate in Senate hearings, but each of us has the right to vote. Don't let today's elections end as just another day. Make up your mind that you are going to make a difference. What difference am I speaking of, you ask? I'm talking about a difference for your community, your children, but most of all a difference for yourself.
Use your voice.

Agreed. Everyone with the right to vote should.
