Get out the Vote!
This is Bill. Well, I don't usually post on here. This might even be my first post, but it's on a topic I feel strongly about, so here it goes. I just read a great blog post here, and I want to say that I can't agree strongly enough! In our day-to-day complaining about life, universe and everything, we often overlook the power that we do have to make a difference in our world. One of the simplest and best ways is to exercise the freedom we have to vote. This is, of course, an important election, but especially so for our friends and family in California. Those who live in California will have the privilege of voting on Proposition 8. No matter how strongly you feel about this proposition our church leaders have been very clear about the importance of this vote! Let's make the difference and get out the vote! Wherever we are, whether in California, Illinois, Utah, Idaho or elsewhere, let's let our voices be heard for those things that are "virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy". For those of us who need constant reminders, now is a great time to make sure you are registered to vote! It is also a good time to make sure you are current on the issues and to make sure that your elected representatives stand on the issues. We are here to make a difference. The world will change whether we like it or not. Let's make sure it changes for the best!
