My status update for today is . . .

. . . I voted.

and I hope you did too.

I love the theater.  Even though it frustrates me sometimes.  And unfortunately some of the issues that frustrate me are things that I can’t change.  They may be up for discussion, debate, and even a blog like this . . . but there’s no vote.

I love this country. Even though it frustrates me sometimes.  And while some of the issues that frustrate me are things that I can’t change on my own, I can vote for the people that can and, I think, will.

This is a nation of passionate people.  People with ideas.  People with thoughts.  People who, like the people who founded it, want to make it a better place.

You are one of those people.

And sometimes it may seem like you can’t make a difference, but the cliche is true.  Today, you can make a difference.

Voting gives your voice volume.  It is the most powerful action item there is.

So do it.  Today.  For the blue, the red, or the mauve party, for all I care.  As long as you care.  Because that’s what counts.

And if you don’t vote, well, I think you should be stripped of your right to complain.
