Canada Garden: Vote!

Tuesday, November 06, 2012


We voted this morning.  I am thankful that I live in the United States.   Not that I think we're perfect, but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.  And even tho I've been worried about possible threats to my freedom of choice lurking out there, I am thankful that as a woman I can walk into the polling place and cast my ballot freely. 

This photo was taken at Henry Ford Museum where we visited last summer with mama and PJ and Jeff.  I will have to ask my mama what mammy and grandma told her about getting the right to vote.

I can't imagine NOT having the right to vote. Even tho some years I don't have a clue, I would have a hissy fit if I couldn't vote. I don't remember any dialogue about voting with Mammy or Mother. You know they lived in a time when the women worked all day on a big meal, then the men ate first, the children next and if anything was left, then the women who cooked it. I will think about it though and see if I can recall anything.
