Today, I voted for the first time in my life! It was such a privilege and an amazing feeling, a feeling of doing my part as a new US citizen. I totally rocked the vote ☺
While I lived in Guatemala, I was too young to vote and I just recently became a US citizen in May of 2012. So, today was a very special day for me. I wanted to vote so badly in 2008’s presidential election, but I feel as though this year’s election was my chance to vote for the candidate I so eagerly wanted to vote for back in 2008. I still had a chance to contribute and do as much as I can to support this nation in reaching its full ideals and potential.
I’m quite baffled by those who choose not to vote. Especially by those who truly believe their vote doesn’t count. Nonsense! Every single vote counts. It’s such a wonderful right and privilege to me, why waste it? Do your part and contribute. Have your say and be as supportive as you can.
Be a responsible citizen and speak your mind. It’s your life, your world and your choice. You should definitely have a say in it.
