Election Day: Tuesday, November 6, 2012
by

Happy Election Day! With everything that has been going on over the past week, I had almost forgotten about the upcoming election—emphasis on the word almost.

Today, millions of Americans across the country will vote for their choices for president, senator, congressperson, and state officials. Friends and family have all reported to me that voting lines are long, long, and longer (and cold, cold, and colder!), which hopefully means that there will be a large voter turnout.

We’re lucky to live in a country where we have the freedom of choice—to choose our politics, religion, education, and more. As a result, elections, particularly presidential ones, have a polarizing effect on our nation. However, I choose to see Election Day as a way for our country to unite. Each and every person who votes ultimately wants the same thing: strong leaders who will make the right choices for individuals and for our country. By choosing to vote, regardless of which candidates we support, we are choosing what we think is best for the United States. In my opinion, it’s pretty amazing that we can all agree on that.
