It's here. This election campaign seemed to last forever, but today is the day. Go vote!!
I try to avoid politics on this blog, but today I'm making an exception. My Grandmother was born in 1902. Growing up she probably didn't expect to ever have the opportunity to vote. Women in this country finally got the vote in 1920 and my Grandmother got to cast her ballot as an adult. She and my Grandfather didn't agree on politics, but they did both agree that it was their responsibility to vote. They instilled that belief in their children and grandchildren, too. Very early every election day morning, my Grandfather would phone me and remind me to vote. I got in the habit of getting up and voting early so I could tell him that I'd already voted when he called.
Today I wish I lived in Rochester, New York. That's the burial place of Susan B. Anthony. This is what her grave looked like last week.
