Election Day

Today is election day. My son just turned 18 and this is his first time voting, so I thought we'd walk over to the polling station together.

It is a humbling experience to bring a new voter into the world. I spoke about how lucky we were to live in a country where citizens had a choice in how they are governed. How blessed America is to be allowed to present to the voters the sacred choice of the electoral franchise. How it is our duty to God and to those who have gone before to exercise our right to vote.

Then came the hard part.

We had to decide whether to vote for the guy who left his wife and kids to shack up with a hot tootsie or the guy who steered kickbacks to his brother-in-law for a series of no-show jobs.

Ah, Democracy in action!
