Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

To my Fellow Preppy Americans,

Today is HUGE for our nation's future.  As a young adult, I find it shocking as to how many people in my generation not only have no desire to vote, but react negatively to those who are enthusiastic about the election.  I have a job, that I work very hard at.  I have a future in this country, and want that future to continue to hold the freedoms, stability, and hard work that America was founded on so long ago.  It is my American right to vote.  A privilege, and I am honored that I have a small say in the future of America.  Although evident who I am voting for (thanks to the picture above), I will not bash those who have opposing opinions.  America is about having the freedom to state what you believe, we should never belittle those who disagree with our own opinions.  I also feel that as a writer who specifies in the subjects of fashion, college life, and fitness...that it is better that I leave my blog for just that and post my political opinions elsewhere (like my Twitter hehe).  That being said, I will leave you all with a historically famous and moving quote from one of our founding fathers:

‎"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country." 
-Samuel Adams

You have a say.  Be heard. Vote!  

Happy Election Day! Have a blessed one y'all!
