30 Days Of Thankful: Day 2

Today I am thankful for the right to vote.

I stood in line for 2 1/2 hours today to participate in our country's democratic process. I almost left. Then I remembered the women who fought long and hard for the right to vote. They didn't wait for just a few hours, they waited for years.
Today I feel blessed that because of their efforts my voice matters in our democratic process.

The 2 1/2 hour line that I stood in to vote. Is it just me, or is the lady in the yellow scarf posing for me?
