I don't know how the weather is to whoever is reading this, but here in Hampton Roads, VA, it's raining on and off. I could easily use this as an excuse to not vote, but after work, I will have my umbrella, wear my plastic rain coat, wait it out in the long line and vote.
I also wanted to share with you that I remember my grandmother telling me that in August 26, 1920, when women won the right to vote, she was 15, and told me what women went through in those previous years; beatings, jailing, violence,etc. So, here's to you, nana. God rest your soul, your words will forever keep me inspired to vote.
