Election Day 2012-19th Amendment for Women's Right to Vote
Election Day 2012--We Americans take for granted the privilege to vote for our government leaders. It wasn't until August 18, 1920 that our constitution was amended to give the right to vote to women. I don't think we can even imagine not having that right in this day and age. Thank you to those hard-working, determined women who were stirred to fight for the right to vote therefore leading to Congress adding the Nineteenth Amendment to the law of the land.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to our fellow citizens who have suffered devastation and hardship due to Supestorm Sandy's path across the east coast. It will be difficult for them to vote this year, but I know there will be a concerted effort to make it to the polls even in this difficult time.
It's going to be a close election according to all the pundits, so if you are able, please get out and vote wherever you are!
