A political rant from the not-so-political media specialist

Please pause while I step up to the podium.
I don't usually get into politics much.  As a matter of fact, the presidential race is the only thing "political" I ever pay attention too.  I actually even watched the presidential debate this year, for the first time ever.  It feels wonderful to be informed, but also a little bit scary.  I think I like my land of denial better.  I hate seeing the future of our country, the leadership of our nation, reduced down to a matter of race.  The color of your skin shouldn't determine who you vote for.  Our president can be black, white, or green for all I care.  I want someone who will stand up for what he believes in, and someone who has the same morals and values that I want to instill in my children.

And honestly, when I go vote today, I feel that I'm going to be choosing between the lesser of two evils.  I mean, why can't we have a CHRISTIAN candidate to choose?  At least I can be comforted in the fact that, regardless of which presidential candidate is chosen today, my God is always in control.
And now I'm stomping stepping down...

On a lighter note, Kyndall got to experience voting for the first time today.  At school, we had a very realistic mock election.  Students worked hard to create voting booths and set up a ballot box.  We were even able to get an authentic voting kit, complete with signs, "I voted" stickers, and badges.  

Here she is registering to vote:

And turning in her ballot.

After placing her vote, she and Harrison worked as volunteers to register the older kids.
