7. I just got my CA ballot and I'm so excited because I get to vote!!

Every time I vote, I'm thanking Rep. Lewis, MLK, Rep. Cummings and President Johnson for making it possible for people who look like me to vote. I don't take it for granted. It is sacred to me. My husband and I will vote for candidates and propositions endorsed by the Democratic National Committee. However, we have already checked most of them out. Education, experience, ethical IQ, emotional IQ, quality of endorsements, and the capacity to ACT in the PUBLIC's interest even when I disagree.

In my area, we vote by mail so we're unlikely to come into contact with any voter rage.
