Remember..... You have the right to vote. Gift Books

Take an old lady's advice.  If you are an American, and if you want to protect your children's future, this is the most important thing for you to do. Most of us are not rich, and we have a huge stake in this next election.  So, Be Heard, even if you think your vote doesn't count, believe me, it absolutely DOES this time.  Even if it looks like a landslide in the polls, it can't be counted on to be so.

In a Quasi-democracy like ours, it's more of a duty NOW because, if half a million votes difference in the popular vote doesn't win an election, it takes a lot more than that.  With 30 states passing new hurdles (new voting registration laws) to make it harder to vote,  you'll have to try harder than ever.

It's worth it, just be sure to start earlier lining up your "ducks".  Do whatever it takes.  Your life could depend on it some day.   But, please, do it for the children who inherit this world and who can't yet vote.  Remember the ad.  "just do something"?  That "something" can be that, this time, You get out there and Vote!

A Gift of Books:

Elle gave us some books she was weeding down from her shelves.

Lots of good reading!
