Just Vote

Support our Troops

We often forget about all of the brave men and women overseas that are fighting for the freedom that we take for granted. Well, this day will certainly not be forgotten by many in my life. Saturday, we lost a great soldier, one that fought bravely for his country. One that was a wonderful man, loved by many. He was a brother, a son, a friend, a boyfriend, an uncle, but most significantly he was young, too young. He served for his country and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

My heart aches for his family. They are in my thoughts and prayers. 

This tragedy has made me think...a lot. There has been a lot of political banter back and forth about the election. And while I have kept myself out of the middle of it, I will say one thing, I voted today! Regardless of party affiliation or candidate following, just vote! It is important to take interest, no matter what amount, in the issues that affect us. Whether it be tax cuts, healthcare or foreign policy, everyone is affected and should have a stance. I feel this is my duty as an American citizen. This is the service I can give to my country.
