I don't think of myself as a political person. I have strong feelings about how I raise my family, personal decisions, etc. But when it comes down to political discussions, I tend to stay out of them. However, I do feel strongly about voting. Being a woman, a mom, a wife, a co-worker, a school volunteer, I really can't imagine what it would feel like to NOT have a say in what goes on around us.
So, head out and vote. As nervous as I was to vote for someone today, it felt good to be able to push that button, show my kids what it's like to vote and do my part, however small it may be.
