So, I just moved out of state and didn't register to vote here in Tennessee. From what people tell me I may be able to do an absentee ballot, but you know what? I don't think I want to bother voting. I understand the importance of getting out there and having a say on how you want the country you live in to be run and I encourage others to vote, but part of me kind of wants to just wash my hands of the whole ordeal. I don't particularly like either Red or Blue candidate and with how this country's politics are right now (and for the foreseeable future) a third party candidate has no chance. So in the meantime I'm going to work on bettering myself and volunteering my time to work on the causes I am concerned with, or maybe making food for the hungry or crocheting blankets or clothes, seeing as it may be hard to go out and volunteer with a little one in tow, we'll see.
So, I'm totally on board with you, Taby! I think in order for the government to change, the citizens need to change first. There's a quote that I'll never forget:
If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.
And that is what I think about that.
