i have to tell you, i felt this amazing sense of happiness when i voted today. i looked around and saw all the people there who CARE, who will make sure their voice is heard, and it reminded me quickly that whatever way we vote, we're all in this together. we can now put this presidential campaign behind us and hopefully work together with a common goal. we all want the best for this country and it's citizens, it's so important to remember that. our country is incredibly divided right now and i feel like this is the time to reach out to those who are disappointed with the results and try to find common ground. we can't effect any change if we can't find a way to work together. let's be kind to each other, respect different viewpoints (as difficult as it may be) and move forward in the most positive way we can!
now i'll get back to biting my nails as i wait for the proposition results to get in (and YAY MAINE, my sweet home state, for finally legalizing gay marriage!!!!!)
