Four generations of voters and a wannabe voter

I'm so proud of my grandson and granddaughter. My granddaughter turned 20 in September, my grandson 18 in September. They both registered to vote and they both voted. I'm so proud of them both for getting involved and voting for what they believe in.

I'm proud of my mom too. She will be 80 later this month and she also listened, learned, and voted.

Then my 10 year old daughter asked me questions, watched the debates, and listened in school. If she could have voted she would have and I think she would have been an informed voter.

My son, well, he wouldn't have even considered not voting. I can not tell you the number of lectures I've endured from him about becoming more savvy with what is going on in our government and the world stage. He really keeps up with this stuff.

Oh, and you too, hubby even though you voted for the wrong person. LOL I'm just glad we won't have to argue about this for another 4 years.

I love you all today and every day and am very proud of you!

I you don't vote you don't have the right to complain over the next 4 years.....Your family has set a wonderful example of why it's important to vote... and we did that ourselves last month during the federal election here in Canada.

My daughter's first time voting today too! It was exciting to take her there. She was very happy to do her duty!
