Voting is very important to me. I do not care for politics and do not watch debates. However, I vote simply because of history. I am a black woman. History told me twice that I could not vote. This is why I take great pride in exercising this right today. There are people that fought for me to be able to do this. What I am able to do so easily came at a very high price for those that wallked before me. Out of respect for their struggle, I vote. Because I want a better future for myself, I vote. If this country is going to be a better place for the people that come after us, it is important to allow those throat chakras to be heard. Whom you vote for is a matter of personal preference. Vote because it is your opportunity to be heard.
