It is Primary Election Day in Maryland. Today we get to vote for our political party’s candidate for Governor along with a slew of local spots. The traffic was light at our polling place, and, frankly we aren’t supposed to have a big turn out. Election years that don’t align with a Presidential election seldom see long lines at the poles. But when I think of all the people in the world who don’t have the power to freely elect a representative government, and the struggles that so many people in this country went through to get the franchise I wouldn’t miss the chance to vote. My beliefs might not align with a candidate’s platform 100%… but, I’m still going to vote. I owe it to those who don’t have the power to cast a ballot. I owe it to the women and minorities of a not so distant US History to step into that booth.
So choosing today’s prompt was easy … VOTE.
