Earlier tonight I dropped off my ballot. Every time I participate in a voting process, I feel that I celebrate the memory of the ancient Greeks who coined the idea that people can have a say in the running of their country’s affairs. I celebrate the memory of all of those who fought, even sacrificed their lives, so that we, the people, have the right to control our country’s destiny.
I have participated in many elections, mostly in Greece. This was the first time I voted as a US citizen. I find it disheartening that the level of participation in this celebration of our democratic rights is so low in this country.
Go people… vote!
