I’ve been thinking a lot about the tomorrow’s election. It is hard not to when it feels like the whole world depends on this next election.
Here is why I vote — because I love God and that means:
- Love neighbor —
- dignity and equality for all
- healthcare for all
- taking care of our elders
- educating our youth
- keeping guns meant only to kill humans out of schools, clubs, yoga studios, places of worship, etc.
- Love creation —
- clean air
- clean water
- safe food
- regenerating our soil
- keeping plastic out of the ground, the air, and the waterways
- encouraging renewable energy use
- discouraging burning of fossil fuels.
- Because if I don’t vote it is the same as saying the status quo is good enough. It is not.
- I have a pre-existing condition.
- My son has autism.
- My husband is a USAF veteran.
- My daughter is a CNA (long-term care facility).
- Some of my neighbors are farmers.
- Some of my neighbors are addicts.
- Some of my neighbors are teachers.
