National elections are taking place. You can still vote early at the courthouse, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., through Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; or at precincts on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

I did not sift through every word and idea that is available about the candidates, but I knew that I had to make a decision. It may be cold, raining, or even snowing, but we must remember that our ancestors fought and struggled a lifetime to keep our freedoms alive.

I voted to honor my grandparents, who left Germany for America so they could vote. I know that my vote will make a difference.

Teach your children about voting. Take them to the polls with you and emphasize the importance of this responsibility. This may be taught in schools, but your example will be the best teacher.

Decide what you believe and then support your beliefs. It takes courage to have a belief. Courage is contagious.

“When a brave person takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened.”  --Billy Graham.

I will also remember: “If you think you’re too small to make a difference, you haven’t been in bed with a mosquito!” --Anita Roddick.

It is a secret who we vote for in America, but when it is over, just let us be proud to say, “I voted this election.” This is not a secret. Show your fellow Americans and children that you want to make a difference.

Do you care about our state and county? Be a good citizen and vote. We do not tell you who to vote for, but do ask you to help preserve our nation’s way of life.

Our armed forces have fought for the right to vote. Don’t disappoint them. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 4. You can also take advantage of early voting at the county clerk’s office until Saturday, Nov. 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
