Did you vote?

I did! It seems like such a small, easy thing to do but voting feels so powerful to me! Most of the time I feel so helpless when it comes to all the big things that are going wrong these days like wars, social injustice, climate change, species extinction, and the list goes on. Voting just makes me feel like I'm doing my part and making a difference, even if it's only a teeny tiny difference. It's so easy to feel cynical and bitter about our government and state of affairs lately but sitting back and doing nothing is definitely not the answer. Plus, what kind of American would I be if I didn't vote for our future American Idol  policies and leaders?!
