Presedential Election 2012

[11.6.12]  In just a few hours, many of us are preparing to witness the admission of the next leader of the United States of America. I have my reasons why I would like to see President Obama continue his presidency for this next term, and although I could give an entire spill as to why he should, it's not my intention to persuade you in any way or tell you who to vote for, but to simply encourage everyone over the age of 18 who is registered to get out there and VOTE, if you have not done so already. Exercising the right to vote is so important in building the economy and moving this country forward. A small thing such as having the resources to educate yourself and formulate an opinion was not even an option for most people at one point.  It's a suffrage that my ancestors died for. Before 1920, women were not allowed to vote. For me, it's all about being able to be apart of a progressive history in a major way. I'm just here to let you know that your voice matters, and if you have been paying attention to the debates, now more than ever.
Despite the outcome, it's imperative that we keep all the politicians (President, VP, Congressmen/women, state legislators, etc.) in prayer.  It's not an easy task to run and entire nation in ruins, therefore we have to learn how to trust a higher force (God), instead of putting all our trust and faith in one man. At the end of the day, the future is built in collective effort, which includes the citizens of America.
Be resillient. Be empowered. Go vote. 
May the best candidate win.
