I voted (mail-in) over 2 weeks ago. Although it felt good to make my choice and send in my hopes and dreams stuffed into a yellow envelope, I was pretty sure that my vote wouldn’t really count, being in a red state and all.
But the news is now saying that my vote very well may be helpful after all. See, Arizona, according to CNN, is now pink, no longer red!!! Pink!!! So my hope is rising through my chest and in my throat, as well as my anxiety. I am so inspired, in fact, that I have offered to come to work, on my day off, to allow other nurses to vote if need be. I’m feeling quite optimistic.
