Election Day 2008

I voted.
I voted for Barack Obama.
I voted because I believe we need change.
I voted because I know that there are people who desperately want to but can't.
I voted because I know that there are people who think it wouldn't matter if they do or not.
I voted because I want America to pull together and get back on the road of progress.
I voted because I want to see strides being made for peace, equality and social justice.
I voted because I want good health care and great education for my daughter.
I voted because I believe I need to protect my reproductive rights.
I voted because I want separation of Church and State.
I voted because I know that it matters.
I voted for Barack Obama.
I voted.
