Election Day, 2010
I want things to be open and honest. I want to respect the opinion of a person and decide if I agree or disagree. I don't have time to worry about it being a truth or lie! Okay, I live in a dream world, believing that everyone is a good person and is only wanting to help save the world. Is it wrong to want this?
Voting in our small community is much like a social event. The people at the polling tables are all friends and neighbors. And yet we have to show a personal id when the person has already greeted us by name! We stand and visit with people we don't ordinarily see. We leave asking one another who this person was or that person. Often times we haven't seen them since high school or as least since our children were out of high school. I wonder how many people go away asking there friend or spouse who I was too!
