In the month of November, I’m meditating on my gratitude for something different each day.
Today I’m thankful for my right to vote.
I’m thankful that I get to weigh in on everything from who will be my city officials to who will be the next POTUS. I owe much to those who came before me, especially the suffragettes that fought for my right to vote. I know our system is not perfect, but I’m thankful that I do not have to expect a rigged election. I’m thankful that there are candidates who continue to push for better healthcare, minority empowerment, and LGBT equality. I’m thankful that I can watch debates and mock or cheer on the candidates via twitter without fear of repercussion.
I’m thankful that I was able to early vote last week, and I hope that if you live in the US, you’ll exercise your right and be thankful that you did.
