Thankvember Day 6 – Voting

On this election day I’d like to show my appreciation for being a part of this great nation. A big thanks to all of the people who fought for Women’s Suffrage, and to our soldiers, past and present, who fight to preserve the freedoms so many of us take for granted.

I used today to teach Alex everything I could about democracy. I was surprised that I was able to get him excited about the topic. He listened intently as I explained how everyone gets an equal say and how precious this right is. From the Ergo he peeked over my shoulder as I cast my ballot. It may be because I bribed him with the sticker, or that he was waiting for pirates (he thought I said boat…) but I hope he’s this excited about the process 16 years from now.
