Yesterday, I stood in a line at a British Petroleum Gas Station on Remsen and Ditmas Ave for four and a half hours to buy gas, today I am prepare to stand longer to vote.
Voting is simply our fundamental right that we sometimes take for granted. I sincerely urge all of you to exercise your right to cast your vote. Not long ago there were rules preventing a generation before us from voting, rules such as the color of one's skin and their gender.
The Women's Suffrage Movement began before the civil war during the 1820s, and for nearly 100 years later women were not allowed the right to vote. On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of United States of America was ratified to give all women the right to vote.
Today, as I stand in the frigid New York temperature, I will remember women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B Anthony just to name a few who believe that voting is an American right that everyone deserve.
I am casting my vote in honor of these women and the generation before
So as you ponder today, whether to vote or not to vote just remember that voting is your chance to remind the men and yes women in Washington that you are the ultimate boss and you are electing them only to represent your best interest.
