As we near the country's election day, let us look back over the past 4 years and contemplate the things that we have witnessed and suffered through.
We have seen some fundamental things that have caused us to question our democracy. Our constitution has been debated on topics that have not been debated in the country's modern history, and in some cases have never been debated. As we have in years past debated our civil liberties, we have come to debate the issue again.
We seem to be in a cycle of human unrest that countless citizens are protesting. There is a tremendous divide in the nation regarding the constitutional right of all citizens to be treated equally under the law.
I'm not sure where we go from here. I guess for me, I have a hard time understanding why any one person or group of people's lives can be considered more important than another's. This is evident in countless scenarios that can be seen on any given media outlet. Whereas we have to be vigilant in our discernment of what is real and what is not, we must pay attention.
My hope for this election cycle is that we have registered to vote and that we exercise our right to vote. Also, that we have been in tune with things that are transpiring around us to be able to make an informed assessment of changes that need to be made. We can make a difference in our society if we use our voices when we vote. Let's not stand on the sidelines and allow things to happen around us when we can make a difference.
Vote. Vote. Vote. November 3, 2020.
