Journaling Reads: The opportunity to vote for the people who will run our country. Voting is a privilege and not something to be taken lightly. Not all of my choices were elected but it’s good to live in a country where everyone has an equal say. “Majority rules” is a good thing. In my bit of naivete, I wish politicians would act more civilly, the election period was shorter and the money spent on it was diverted to reducing the deficit. Amen!
