A Civic Imperative

Today, November 6, 2012, is election day!  No matter your own personal political creed, it is incumbent upon every US citizen 18 and older to vote.

There are so many places all over the world where people do not have the ability to vote in free and fair elections, or are forced to participate in political theatre by voting for a dictator in a rigged system.   People die all over the world fighting for a right that is guaranteed to us in our Constitution, and yet, many people will inexplicably choose not to vote today.  That saddens me.

Whatever you are doing today, wherever you are, please take the time to cast your ballot.
