The significance of the sticker I received today has never been so profound. This is my third election yet my first time feeling like I was doing more than just my civic duty. Let me explain, in the other elections I voted because my mom told me I needed to. Mom always knows best, right? Well this election was important to me not only from the historical perspective, but because I wanted to be educated on the candidates and the issues that affect Americans like me and you. After walking out of the voting booth, I felt like I made a positive difference and felt even more patriotic. My mom didn't call asking me if I voted this time, I called her!
How do you feel about this election? Whether you voted or not, what were the feelings you had on the historical day of November 4, 2008?
