My Thoughts on #ElectionDay2018

Sometimes I get political on my blog, although it’s been a long time. Traveling opens your eyes to how the actions of elected officials and policies of our country impact others, whether traveling across the country or across the world and this why I beleive discuasing politics is important. #ElectionDay2018

Last night while sorting through some of my blog posts, I came across one summarizing Laura Bush’s remarks from an event in 2014. The topic of civility came up and paraphrasing what she said, she hoped people in politics find a way to be civil with each other because being civil “sets an example for the country.”

In elections on local, state and federal levels, today’s an opportunity for new beginnings. It’s an opportunity to restore some level of civility.

Here in Florida, today’s an opportunity to cleanup our water and safeguard healthcare, especially important to those of us with preexisting conditions. I hope you’ve been watching the actions of candidates running and just not listening.

Whichever candidates win today on the local, state and national levels, I hope they will work to bring people together and embrace they are leaders for ALL their constituents and not just those who voted for them.

Divisiveness needs to stop. I’ve asked the rhetorical question before, who benefits when we are divided?

Together we are Americans and we are stronger together. United we stand, divided we fall.

Go vote!
