I am now in my 50th year of life. My friend called recently to talk about the cost of setting up the polling booths. She votes absentee.
I told her how glad and how proud I am to have the honor to vote -- to the point, I walk to my polling place with such a feeling of pride. All the way to and from I think of and say "thank you" to the women of the past who gave so much so I may have the right to vote.
