Thank God I Voted.
More precisely, I thank God that I live in a land where I can vote. Took advantage of that privilege of citizenship this morning, along with about a hundred others from my precinct who showed up before dawn to cast their ballots.
It made me glad again to be an American. The turnout is the heaviest I can remember in the ten years I’ve been voting in this precinct. Even though the driving force behind the heavy turnout is the acrimonious presidential campaign, the fact that we’re settling our differences–please, Lord, let it be settled tonight!–with ballots instead of bullets is yet another example of what has made America unique and great for over two hundred years.
We’re not perfect. But we’re still the best deal going.
