Was it as good for you?

Posted in Liberty at 6:51 pm by Elaine Petrowski

as it was for me?

Voting, that is.

You did vote today… right?

How did it feel?

Just a bit anti-climatic after 21 months and all the hoopla?  More patriotic than anything else you’ve done in a long time?  Surprisingly emotional?  Gratifying?  Tearful?  So, so lucky to have the good fortune to be born here?  Soothing? Hopeful? Vengeful? Righteous?  Like you were participating in history?  Something you should record all the details about, and then take a photo of, so you can show your future grandchildren you were there?

You did vote today … RIGHT?

( Please — unless you are gravely ill or giving birth today — if you don’t vote in this election, DO NOT EVER admit it to me  and not expect me to think so much less of you. And do NOT EVER complain about this great country within earshot of me either.)

And if you didn’t vote yet, you have 1.5 hours to GET IT DONE if you live in New Jersey and 2.5 hours if you live in New York.

Please add a comment about your voting experiences today.

    Yes, it was good for me too. I dragged my 2-yeard old and my sick 5-year old and his barf bucket (just in case). Although our candidate did not win, the experience was truly inspiring.
