Hello Family:

Casting my ballot at City Hall

Election time in the USA, and the challenges we face seem as desperate and divisive as they could possibly be! I remember when I learned that I lived in a democracy. I would have the right and the opportunity to vote when I grew up, and my vote would carry the same weight as anyone else’s, even the richest man in the country. It thrilled me to learn about the kind of civic power bestowed on the citizens of this land, and I still believe in the spark of liberty at the heart of this country. We can do better! We the people may not agree on how to get there, but we have already agreed that we stand for the freedom of every individual to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Liberty and justice for all!

You see my voting picture above, below are some relatives and friends. I’ll post yours, too, if you send it to me.

Krystal and Finn. My parents always took me to the polling place with them, too.
