9/11...

Another anniversary of a horrible day...

But, maybe we should use today to reflect on how fortunate we are that we live in America ... and that we have the right to honor and celebrate the lives of those who lost their lives that horrific day.

And, maybe we could think about the other rights that we have - like the right to vote for the leaders of our country.

I am so sick of hearing people say that they are not going to vote because they don't like either of the people running. It's not about whether you LIKE them or not...it's about what direction you want to see your country going in the next four years and who is the best person to take it there as far as you are concerned.

Those people need to stop being such lazy Americans and study the issues and see how they feel in their mind or hearts and go with the candidate who feels the same way.

That would be one way to honor those who gave up their lives on 9/11...and those who give up their lives daily for our country.

Awesome post, Sara! Even those folks that don't like either candidate should pick the lesser of two evils, if that's how they choose to see it.

I have hope!

Ugh, people who don't vote....yeah, I agree 100% But then again, if people AREN'T going to educate themselves on the issues, perhaps it is better if those folks stay home. I don't know, I just don't get how people can not CARE.

You go Sara.....exactly why I care so much for you, you always speak your mind. People should vote to express on the issues going on with our country.

I wish discussions on the real issues would get more room in the headlines these days. (The media is driving me NUTs.)

Amen Sister! People just don't understand how freedoms can go easily when you are not an active participant!

Wake up America!

I couldn't agree more, my dear Sara!
