In case you’re unaware, tomorrow is election day, and it kinda feels like another Frankenstorm is on the horizon. Like most people, my personal political belief system is a manifestation of my values, but in my eyes it’s as important, if not more important, to embody those values every day, not just on election day.
The strange, and somewhat comical, thing about our current political schism is that the divide is so much wider in our rhetoric than it is in our values. Otherwise pleasant, respectful people have adopted a finger-pointing, holier-than-thou stance about their political perspective that has deferred dialogue and consensus indefinitely.
So, vote or don’t vote however you see fit, relax, and carry on. There are many more meaningful things that you could do with your day than what you’ll do alone in that little booth. Come Wednesday, the sun will still rise, the birds will still sing, and we’ll still be neighbors and friends regardless of who’s been elected Homecoming King.
