It doesn’t matter who wins the elections in the USA. America’s future is safe and sound. As long as we have bright, young, forward thinkers like Rachel “Fitz” Fitzpatrick we are going to be okay. I take the liberty of calling Rachel a good friend and I know for sure she is an inspiration. We only met once, at a birthday party a while back, and since then have been Facebook buddies. Rachel’s is in her twenties and full of optimism and enthusiasm for life and everything that’s in it.
I wanted to blog about our nation and our freedoms and how important and sacred they are. I read Rachel’s posting on Facebook this morning and I was so moved. It was short and simple yet so powerfully eloquent that my words would be insignificant.
“I'm voting because my type fought harder than any other type in America. We should exercise that right. Don't vote against yourself and inhibit your rights as a human being today. Today is not about 4 years, it's about a lifetime. Vote for you, your safety, your children's safety, and your parents safety. We vote for our future based on experience alone. We aren't voting for magic, for kings, for money, for vanity. Only you can change yourself with the tools being supplied. So hope for change in policy that helps the greater good as an American and let the individual go. God bless this country.”
Thank you Rachel for letting me know that when my head hits the pillow tonight our future isn’t something I need to worry about as long as there are people like you willing to see a positive vision.
