None of us will be ‘freed’ by a politician. However, a single vote can liberate a person. When we step alone into the voting booth in a few weeks, my hope is that we see at the bottom of our ballot, visible only to us, our own names. Why? Because our problems in this life, our true bondages, are in the mirror. If we will look at the mirror again, closely, we will see the solution to our problems.

I hope with that realization we will with vigor and energy grab the lever (or “check” the ballot) to cast a vote for ourselves before we vote for anyone else. All of us have discouraging, despondent moments, and are influenced by environment and social fads. Yet we are not made of ordinary clay. May we say, This is who am I today, but this is who I will be tomorrow.
