The River: Writing Challenge Day 11
As much as I hate campaign season and politics in general, like many (most?) things I have to remember that this is a by product of something very positive - in this case, the fabulous gift of freedom. To have a say in the leadership of my school, township, city, county, state and/or country is freedom. To have an opinion and freely speak it, about the choices, the system, or the opinions of anyone else, is freedom. My voice can be as loud as I want it to be, or silent, and that is also freedom. As angry as it all makes me at times, and as sad and despondent, I am grateful for that freedom.
