Tomorrow is Election Day in the U.S.
It was only 89 years ago that women got the right to vote. I knew a woman (she died at a 100 years old) who marched for the right to vote and ended up jailed for 4 days. They arrested her and others on the Friday they marched, then didn't arraign them until late Monday and put all the women in the worst, filthiest part of the jail. My friend, 19 at the time and wearing a brand new outfit, spent the weekend standing up, too horrified to sit or eat or sleep.
She voted in every election she could, no matter how small. She never believed that people didn't bother to vote. She couldn't imagine it.
Voting is a privilege. I don't care what political party you belong to or who you vote for, just please, please, please
VOTE VOTE VOTE
The thunk you hear is Conda stepping down off her soapbox.
