This is one of the first presidential elections in a very long time that I haven't been officially involved in for a very, very long time. And I am grateful. Why? Because I am really struggling with my decision. I have done research...and more research...and more research again. I have discussed the issue with friends and family and listened to their input.
However, I remain stumped. As we all know, there is so much at stake in our country. And for the very first time I am voting with a key issue in mind...the future of education and services for individuals with developmental disabilities. Of course there is also the economy, future of small businesses, basic priniciples of government, important social issues and so on to consider. AND while there are many promises being made that sound simply spectacular, it really bothers me when candidates promise programs that are simply not financially possible.
So I best run...Max just signed for "cookie" and I think he should probably start the day with something a little healthier. That was a much simpler choice than the others being made today!
*Saying an extra little prayer today that no matter who is elected, we are united as a nation and work together for powerful, effective solutions for our problems...especially the issues impacting my lil' adorable boy! :)
* GO VOTE! *
