Aren't they lovely? So serene and peaceful.
It was a wonderful start to the day I voted for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
It was not what I experienced at the Department of Elections in Georgetown when I went to vote later that morning. It was, as one woman said, "Wild".
Okay, so take that word and adjust it to life in Lower, Slower, Delaware. It wasn't South Bronks or mid-Town wild. And, it certainly wasn't African safari wild. It was a ten minute wait in a line that barely circled the building.
I can't imagine how "wild" it will be today.
No matter. Your voice, your vote matters deeply in this election.

And, if you are thinking about Reproductive Justice and why your vote matters, please check out this video which was produced by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.
But, please! Just vote! Calmly. Confidently. Peacefully.
But, a bit like those geese - paddling like hell underneath.
