Happy birthday in heaven dear mom: This vote was for you

My mom loved election day. She loved voting. She truly cared and felt her vote counted. Or that she wanted it to count. Had she still been alive for this election, I know she would have stood happily in those lines. Election day often fell on her birthday making it even more special.

Today is her birthday and I know she’s looking down and wishing us all luck as we embark, as a nation, on a new path. I wish I could have shared this week with her. But I voted with her in my heart and spirit.
