today at 5:30 am i walked 1.5 blocks to my polling place, a firestation on green leaf. at 5:30 am, i was the third person in line and by 6:00 am, there were 75 people lined up down the block.
i thought that i would cry as i cast my vote, but i did not. i felt so empowered as i connected the two arrows. as i walked out of the booth, turned in my ballot, and descended out of the firehouse, i couldn't stop smiling.
tonight we are going to grant park. i hope, with every ounce of myself, that his speech will be that of accepting the presidency.
