I hear, and I forget
I see, and I remember
I do, and I understand
I vote as a gesture of respect for all those who have worked so hard and given so much for me to fill in each of those little boxes. I vote to carry on the tradition that millions of brothers and sisters before me struggled to give me. Voting is my responsibility to my children. Voting is my responsibility to my country. Each time I vote, I once again understand the power of my voice. Without the actual gesture of voting, I would not understand the co-mingling of power through grace. I do have a voice. I do have a privilege and a right. But only if I cast my vote. I do, and I understand.
Be gentle with the soul of our country.
