A case of political warm fuzzies (((((((((hugs))))))))

Free to live, free to speak, free to be!

I just got done voting. I purposely don't talk politics on my blog, because its purpose is to be fun and goofy. Needless to say, political discussion doesn't fit into my blog plan.

However, today I'm feeling all warm fuzzy inside and this is as political as I'll get here:

Thanks to the men and women who fought and sacrificed so that I can live in a free country.

Thanks to the women who fought so that, as a woman, I can vote and that a female can be a candidate for vice president or president. (Something that in my Grandparents time wasn't even a possibility.)

Thanks for the people who have fought for racial equality so that any American, no matter the color of their skin, may run for president. (Another thing that, in my Grandparents time, was not a possibility.)

Thanks to the men and women who fight to keep our country free and safe.

I'm thankful that I can worship in my church of choice, even if my beliefs aren't popular.

Thank you.
I'm glad I have a vote and my voice can be heard.

Great post. I have the warm and fuzzies today, too. I'm voting when my hubby gets home so he can watch the kids (except for the 11 year old - she's going with me). My hubby voted this weekend. Looking forward to it.

I stay away from talking politics on my blog too, but I do hope everyone goes out and votes. Freedom was to hard won to push aside because a re-run of Oprah is on...

C.R. Evers said...

Great minds think alike Carrie! :0)

Hi Angela! Well put!

Rena said...

Great post Christy...I voted earlier today and can't wait to see what the results are...and you did a great job at warm and fuzzy...Loved the pics!

C.R. Evers said...

LOL, Ian. You're very clever, but I think you've got it backwards. That combination doesn't give relief, it would only cause more irritation. :0O

Thanks Brenda! :0)

Bish Denham said...

I'm thankful too. Got a long history of being contrarian. But I didn't get too political on my blog, just a little bit.

C.R. Evers said...

Hi Sruble! Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Bish! I'll pop over sometime today and peek at your sem-political post. :0)
