This afternoon I walked down the alley and across the street to my local voting center. I gave them my name, took my ballot, and enjoyed the privilege that so many men and women have died to protect. I voted. Freely, without fear of repercussion, I cast my opinion into the sea of Americans who all come together to celebrate this thing we call democracy.
Now to endure the hype, controversy, and childish infighting that embodies American politics.
