Week 11: First

We have a new President. This was the first national election I was able to participate in, and at the end, we have the first African-American President of the United States. How cool is that?

I heard so many complaints about our voting process--"I have to wait how long?" "Why can't I drop my ballot off here?" "What do you mean they're closed?" But c'mon, people. Voting is the crux of democracy. We can make stuff happen by filling out a piece of paper. As one of my coworkers so astutely noted: "And we don't have to worry about anyone shooting at us."
