I hope that everyone that is registered to vote gets out to vote on Tuesday. Not only will the results of this election go down in history no matter which party wins, but the end results of this election is important for our country as well as for the world. I know a lot of people that did the early voting. The news reported that people stood in line for eight hours yesterday to cast their vote early and I look for the lines to be long tomorrow as well.
I have never taken my right to vote lightly. In all of the years that I have been a registered voter, I only missed voting in one election. After watching the HBO movie, 'Iron Jawed Angels' a few years ago, I promised myself that I would never fail to exercise my right to vote unless there just was no way I could. Since the original airing of this movie, I understand that it has been released on video and DVD. I highly recommend it. If you can't find the movie, there is an e-mail 'Why Women Should Vote', that has been circulating that tells the story of the brave women that risked their lives to win women the right to vote. It is a piece of history that I think everyone should take a look at. History was a subject in school that I enjoyed. I remember learning about that time in history when women won the right to vote, but we were not taught what they went through to win that right. Democrat or Republican ...... Get Out The Vote!
I wanted to share these pictures of the boys and their Halloween. Riley was the policeman and Seth was his little jail bird. After Melody got Seth into his costume, Riley wanted to know where Seth's wings were....... Imagine, a jail bird without wings, he didn't even have feathers! Both of the boys had a great time and when the day is done, it just doesn't get any better than falling asleep hugging your little brother.
May your week be filled with blessings.
