Five Minute Friday - vote

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on vote.

Go.

Did I ever tell you that I once refused to vote. Out of principle. Out of anger. Because I didn't believe in our system anymore and I was so tired of the lies and the concerns and the way we all felt let down. I hated that one person's one vote didn't seem to count.

Did you also know that politics is a no-no to discuss? That most people battle or are disappointed when they find out you aren't "on the same side". As I aged, I got over a lot of that lovies. I did vote. I did let my voice be heard. I did fall in love with a leader that really led with his heart and soul and betterment of the county and wanting things to be better and knowing better and doing better. I started to believe again.

You know where I stand. You know I will be on the right side of history and this election is the most important of our lives. I keep shouting that there are more of us, there will always be more of us, but we all get complacent and we all get tired and we all don't show up. So this election, please show up. Please look into your souls and be sure the person representing our county is someone you want our kids to really look up to, really be like.

This election, show up, vote the hell out of this election, be on the right side of history. Don't give up on this country. America is not perfect, but there is hope here and for that, she is beautiful.

Stop.

  1. We need leaders who are after God’s own heart! I pray that’s who we find in office! God is in control! Thank you for reminding us that there’s always Hope for America the Beautiful! Your neighbor at #fmf, Cindy

  2. Your post made me think about Star Wars, and the Revenge of the Sith.

    Long ago and far away
    in a galaxy that never was,
    liberty met its dying day
    by unforced vote, and all because
    people were weary of the strife
    that despoiled both stars and land
    and thought that a better life
    might come beneath an iron hand.
    But tyranny's always unsated
    by what's offerred willingly,
    and thus all the worlds were fated
    to a path so chillingly
    proclaimed in freedom's final hour,
    the boast of pride, "Unlimited power!"
