Let’s Talk About the “V” word
In the middle of living your life, have you wondered recently what’s going on? Here you are, going to school, working a job, looking for a job, supporting yourself and/or a family, parenting a child or children…doing combinations of these activities and more…and you look around and think what’s going on; is this the same country it was a few years ago? Do you feel in control of your life? Do you feel you or your family are secure in terms of preparation for the future? Are there special interests or concerns you or your family have about your “place” in all of the “communities” of which you and they are members?
One important thing you can do is vote. Make sure you are registered to vote and let your voice be heard. Make sure the people you care about are registered to vote. Make your voice be heard. That’s one important way to exercise your power and exert some control of your life. This is not corny; this is important.
