I Voted (but does it matter)

Growing up, Dad’s favorite topic was “civil disobedience.” Fighting for what you feel is right, but in a non-violent way. I think he wanted to prepare us to fight for our beliefs, to make good decisions about what to fight for, but he always wanted us to make sure we knew that some things are worth fighting for.

It feels like the majority of my peers feel a complete dissonance from the government today. That no politician really jives with their beliefs. That even if they vote, there’s no guarantee that their vote will be counted. That the government needs an enema via a rebellion or two or ten. Has it always been this way?

But, I stood in line for an anxious two minutes and voted anyway.

What do you think?
