A Thought for Voters …
If you are finding it difficult to vote, vote on behalf of the 300,000 who can no longer vote. Or vote on behalf of our murdered brothers and sisters. Or vote on behalf of the billions who matter, and who would dearly love to have your American privilege. Or vote on behalf of Mother Earth; she’s dying.
Vote in their place. Think of it as their vote, a proxy vote, not your vote. Ask, how would they vote? Then honour them. Please vote, because you can.
