The Day is Here. Finally.

It's November 4th. The day of all days. I've waited for what seems like forever for this day to come and it's turned out pretty much how I thought it would: A call from my mom telling me how excited she was, a bunch of text messages and commercials reminding me to vote and just an overall sense of anticipation from everybody.

I voted last Friday and it was honestly one of the most powerful things that I've ever done. I got there early as hell and I was still #431 to vote. By like nine o'clock there had to be like 13 hundred people crammed in the Adamsville Recreational Center. I waited for almost six hours to vote, but it was more than worth it. Just me being able to have this experience is something that my grandparents never thought they would see. So I know you've heard it a thousand times already, but PLEASE go vote. For many of us, this is the first time we've been able to vote. And with such an important election, why would we not go vote?? People sacrificed everything, including their lives, just so we would have this opportunity.

So I won't tell you who to vote for, but just vote for somebody. And with that being said.....OBAMA 08.
