Summer Writer’s Challenge: Day


Beautiful tropical beach with the word summer written on the san

 

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.
