Gratitude: day 3

I rocked the vote. 

My ballot included three town council positions, one of which was unopposed. 

But I still rocked my vote. 

I know our system is flawed, and I am becoming politically jaded as I open my eyes more to the system. 

But I still rocked my vote. 

Why?

Because our system, flaws and all, is better than many other countries’ systems. 

  
 Because every voice counts. 

    
Because those who came before me didn’t sacrifice so I could sit on the sidelines.
