You know I wasn’t born in this country. I was born in Gujarat, India. We moved here when I was 4 years old, so Cleveland’s really where I grew up & learned everything (school & street).
My b-day’s in May, & 1 month after my 18th birthday, my sister & I got naturalized. The only reason we got naturalized was so that we could vote. Seriously, we had no other benefit from it at the time. We just thought that we should have a say in the country that had become our home. And I’ve voted in every election since then & every primary except for one. The very 1st time I voted, I took my (then) 5 yr old brother in w/ me so he could see what the excitement was all about. And I was full of excitement that very 1st time.
I guess this year, I’ve just been so shocked/surprised by how many ppl over 30 have never registered or voted. I’ve heard ppl say that this is the 1st election they will vote in, & they are 40 years old. I was just appalled the 1st few times I heard that.
I really don’t care* who you or anybody votes for, I just think everybody should cast a ballot.
Anyway, enough of my self-righteousness…..
You remember those wazzzzzup commercials? Well, this is for you, then.
*That’s not really true, I do care. I’m not that open-minded. I believe what I believe & would love to make ppl vote the same way I do. But that’s not kosher, & you’re not really supposed to say that outside of your own head.
