I’ve never been radical but I’ve always been fearless.
Fearless enough to venture far, far away from the nest and find my way.
Fearless enough to study for and pass my U.S. citizenship test with flying colors.
Appreciating the privilege, I’ve never not voted.
Yes the phone calls and flyers, negative ads and people at the door can get annoying.
And yes, there are items on the ballot I don’t care much about — like who serves on the Board of Regents for various public colleges.
But most things I do.
And I’m so grateful to have a say.
So today, I’ll be late for work because I am stopping to vote first. I’ll chat with the poll workers who know me by name and just that experience right there will put a spring in my step and a smile on my face.
As a citizen of this country for only six years, maybe I am a little bit radical.
God Bless America, Land that I love || Stand beside her, and guide her || Thru the night with a light from above
From the mountains..to the prairies || To the oceans..White with foam || God Bless America! || My Home Sweet Home
