Election Day

Wow, this year has afforded some very exciting voting opps. First there was the primary election and now the vote for the President. I can't remember the last time I went to the polls to vote *for* someone instead of against someone. It made me wonder if this is what it felt like to vote for JFK. Excited, feeling like I was part of history. I've never felt like that before.
And I'm glad I waited until today to vote, too, instead of voting early like many others. And it would've been easy since they were doing it right next to where I work. It felt a little more exciting to do it today somehow, on the day designated hundreds of years ago as election day.
Finally. 54 years old and I finally get to vote for a candidate I can be proud of.
