It was neat to take Justin with me to vote.
He stood next to me and intently read each section as I explained each circle I filled in.
The something happened as we left that building, he began to talk, and talk a lot, he began to ask more questions,
he became a political activist.
Per his request we headed to the campaign headquarters of his candidate, got a sign, and then headed to my place of work where he stood out by the road holding it.
When I walked out to get him to go home he had the biggest smile on his face. This is what he said to me, "That was fun mom. I got honks and waves, you know the steering wheel type waves. I got thumbs up, smiles and head nods. I enjoyed that."
Interesting what that one opportunity did for him. It wasn't his first time is a voting booth; actually it was his 3rd, but he is older and wiser. He got it.
He got how our system works, how our voices get heard.
It was a heart warming time.
Now let's see what the next 4+ years have in store for us!? Honestly, I'm looking forward to it!
