DAY 28 - How Sacred is an Election?

Election Day, tomorrow, Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 is a sacred day.

I am using the word "sacred" here to mean "entitled to reverence and respect"; as found in Merriam-Webster's Dictionary.

We are a fortunate people, to live in a Country of such freedoms! A Country in which each of us has a voice and a vote.

There are those who feel that their votes are meaningless; that they rarely get what they voted for. My response is; if your child called for help, how many times would you stand up to try to help him? Would you stop trying to help? Will you stop trying to help our Country, or will you stand up and vote?

Will you encourage others to vote?

Please note that I have not, and will not be suggesting how you should vote, just the importance of voting.

Finally, what does voting have to do with health? The health of our Nation is dependent on our citizens expressing their views through their votes. And the health of each citizen is powerfully influenced by, if not dependent on the health of our Nation.
