I have tried, for the most part, to keep politics out of my blog. But today I want to offer a well-wish to all those going out to vote tomorrow. As you cast your ballots and consider what you want the character of our country to be, keep in mind what makes us, as human beings, special.
It isn’t the color of our skin.
It isn’t the faith in which we were raised.
It isn’t the language we speak, or the place where we had the luck (good or bad) to be born.
It isn’t our gender.
It isn’t whom we’re attracted to, or whether we’re attracted to anyone at all.
It isn’t any part of the hand we’re dealt at birth.
It’s our capacity to think, dream, create, and love.
This is what makes a person great, and each of us can aspire to and cultivate this greatness. It isn’t limited to those who look, talk, and act like us.
Let’s show we believe that.
