Two Proud Days in 2008

It is exactly 50 years ago that I became old enough to vote for the President of the United States.  That was in 1958 when I turned 21.  I had to wait two years in order to exercise that right.

This year, 2008, there are actually two days when I can express my preference.  On February 12th I voted in the primary here in Virginia.  It was the first time that I was ever voted for a woman for president. 

I did not vote for just any woman.  My vote went to someone that I believed was more than capable of holding that high office.  I still do.  My candidate did not survive the primaries and the caucases.  My feeling of loss was deep and sincere.

Much has happened since I cast my vote.  During that time I had an opportunity to learn more about my candidates opponent.  Through this process I became more and more comfortable with his capabilities also.

Now that we are only five days away from my second opportunity to vote, I am equally excited to cast my ballot. 

Fifty years ago I had no idea that I would be making two historical votes in 2008.  What a proud and grateful American I am.

Please remember to exercise your right to vote.

It is your choice, it is your right and it is your responsibility.

American Flag

 

Yesterday I was at the post office and saw a farm across the road with Halloween decorations

that I liked.  While taking some pictures I noticed how pretty the flag in front of the

post office looked against the sky.  Little did I know when taking this photo that I would

be writing a post today about my voting opportunities this year.

 

You never know what you may see when you are out and about so keep that camera right by your side
