Thankful Heart: Day 3

Standard

Today I’m thankful to live in a place where my vote counts.

Did you know that 100 year ago, women in the US weren’t allowed to vote? We weren’t granted the right to have our voices heard until 1920. That is mind boggling to me.

And thankfully, that is something that is even more mind boggling to Scorch and Bean. They simply can’t fathom a world where a woman doesn’t have equal say in what’s happening in her world. I know a lot of people say that our votes don’t really counts or matter- that’s a debate for another time. What I *do* know is that voting is my right and my responsibility and because of that, I’ll do my best to an educated, involved voter.

Most poling places are open until 9 here in NY- there is still plenty of time to make sure your voice is heard on important local matters!
