The Power is Yours

So today is a very important day.

It is not a holiday or anniversary; but much more important.

Hmm...

Hmm…

Today is Voting Day!

vote

Whatever party you are, it doesn’t matter; you get yourself to the polls and honor the right that the people who created this country fought hard to win.

The right that people die trying to keep safe for us.

A big thank you to all servicemen, past and present

This is a right that not every person in the world has, but we are lucky enough to have. So exercise that right!

I will end this post with one political thought. Here is a quote I think encompasses my beliefs and something I hope you all consider as you think long and hard about who to choose in any office.

Every Heart Beats True for the Red, White & Blue

“You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of the land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.”

                                                                             -You’re a Grand Old Flag

Happy 4th of July everybody!

4th of july Captain America

Today we celebrate the birth of our country.

CaptainAmericaVictory

A country that was going to be different than any other. One that wouldn’t have a king with all power, but a President with limited power, and the people would be the ones to hold sway. A county based on giving people rights and allowing them to make their own decisions. Happy Birthday United States of America!

So while you’re eating your BBQ and shooting off fireworks, never forget what this holiday stands for.
