Election Day

I voted yesterday. Did you?

I still don't know all the election results. I know some things went the way I wanted and others did not. Oh well... our democratic republic in action.

I vote in every election. And because I am a teacher, I make sure I talk it up with my students. Especially since I teach fifth graders, who study American history. We teach them the basics of our government as established by the founding fathers. I want them to see that voting is living history, and that when they are of age, they will be able to vote. Too many don't take the right to vote seriously, and I want to do what I can to make sure my students won't be like that when they're adults.
