I saw that phrase written on an old Mexican La-Bamba car window.
It brought joy to my heart and a tear to my eye.
I still love to say it. Sing it with me, "BoO-YaH, AmEriCa!"
I just voted. Yes, I joined the "early birds" and voted today. Being that this was my first voting experience (since, yes, I just turned 18), I have to say, I was surprised at the feeling of gladness I experienced as I walked out of the city hall. The sun was shining a little brighter, the birds were singing a little louder (those blasted grackles!), and all in all, I was happy.
Yes, I felt a sense of civic pride, people.
Now, what could possibly top that feeling? I'll tell you.
A-dawg (he hates it when I call him that) just called me on his way home from school (11:00 a.m., mind you!) AND!!! (mind reels there could be more) he was on his way to the City Hall. Mr. I'm-Not-Going-To-Vote-Because-My-Vote-Doesn't-Matter is actually standing in line right now to vote. !!!
(Yes, I tried asking him, "what if everyone in america was like you? then where would we be?"---but alas, now he has TRICKED me and TREATED me!)
ha. little halloween joke.
Wonder of wonder. Miracle! Miracle!
Shocker of all shocks.
Good on ya, mate.
Today is a good day. Halloween is here, candy is everywhere, we are a voting family, and I'm making home-made soup (pray for us). Let freedom ring, my friends.
p.s. Aaron, if you really did vote for the "other" candidate, just to discount MY vote (like you threatened on the phone), you are dead meat. Dead meat with a captial "D".
