No Matter What Party You’re Voting for the only way your voice will be heard is if you get out there and VOTE!


Massachusetts Primary day on Super Tuesday in Longmeadow on 3/1/16. (Dave Roback / The Republican)

Friday I cast my vote via absentee ballot, but today on “Super Tuesday”, as I dropped off my children the lines were wrapped around the High School I once roamed the halls of. Eager, anxious, voters who want their voices to be heard cast their votes between Republicans or Democrats each with their own strong opinions. My only fear is that all sense will disappear and that voters will vote for the loudest voice they hear. I fear that they will find comfort in empty promises and idle threats thrust about between the candidates. My thoughts are geared toward the future and to the world that we will leave our children and their children. Will it even exist after all this? I pray that voters don’t pull us backward to a time we worked so hard to move away from. I truly hope that change is truly what voters are after and not an regression there is no return from. Yes, change is what is needed but there is clear and obvious path that needs to be taken to get there. One wrong move and we all lose.

Please cast your vote based on fact, the good of our country and a safe future for our children.

You fill me with passion and desire

To fight for what I believe in

You push me to use my god given right to vote at each election

Sometimes I struggle to decide who’s right or wrong

And often find it’s hard to sift through the lies and the list of broken campaign promises

I watch candidates thrust about their disapproval of their opponent’s current and past efforts

You make certain to point out every candidates flaws

I watch every debate hoping for answers and waiting for change

Thinking that this time things will be different

But we all stand there watching and listening to the bantering

Threats are made

Feelings are hurt

While demands are made but avoided like the plague

No one wants to be accountable for anything

So I slowly step back to make my own escape

I await the nightly news for all political updates

All the while knowing I won’t find any comfort in what I hear

But still it’s my right, it’s my choice and it’s my honor

To VOTE on each and every election day

Despite what the candidates might say

I forgive all the lies I’ve heard

And hope that all go our way

On each election day.
