Today I exercised my right and responsibility as a US citizen. After careful consideration of each candidate, I voted. It is a tradition that began when I turned eighteen and has continued with every primary and general election. Each opportunity to cast my ballot is special because:
- I don’t have to risk life or limb to choose my leaders
- I have a say (albeit a small one) in the people who will make decisions for my country
- I remember the people who fought and are still fighting to keep our country free
Thank you to everyone who has served or is serving our country. I appreciate your commitment to our freedom.
I will continue to show that appreciation by researching the candidates and voting for the ones most committed to preserving our freedom and values.
