... a majority to go!Here's what a polling place looks like in my 'hood ... we voted a little after 8:00 a.m. this morning. There was a bit of a line but it moved right along.
I was heartened by the neighborhood families who came, bringing their small children with them, and listened with some poignancy as one dad explained -- probably again -- to his 6ish year old why this was an historic day.
It was also a joyful thing to hear the number of people answering "yes" to the "are you a first time voter?" question -- and watching the poll workers take care to explain the process and equip them to cast their ballot.
And now we wait. I'm on a "Bread of Anxiety Fast" today ... so far so good. So VOTE, stay tuned ... and let us pray:
Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
