Voting & Veterans Day

Midterm elections tend to bring with them endless radio spots, television commercials, and more yard signs on the side of the road than anyone can count. Sure, there is negativity, accusations, and confrontation that takes place, but this is all a small price to pay for freedom and democracy. 
On Election Day, November 7th 2018, I sat in a crowded church sanctuary, awaiting my turn to exercise my right to vote….to fulfill my civic duty. The duty millions of soldiers in the United States Military fought and died for me to have and to exercise. (Sidenote- I don’t believe it is any coincidence that Election Day and Veteran’s Day fall within the same week on the calendar).

While waiting, I heard numerous sighs, groans, and complaints about the length of the line. I could have easily been frustrated with taking an hour and half out of my Tuesday to wait in a crowded room. I could have been frustrated that it took me 3 laps around the parking lot to find a space, but I chose differently.
