I guess this is the temporary general forum, so here goes.
This is so not me but I felt it was an incredibly important message.
As much as I can see, race and sex should never be an issue that would compel one to vote one way or another. Instead let us find it in ourselves to look beyond all of the predictable, divisive political rhetoric and just listen. Listen not only to the words spoken, but also to manner in which they were. Are they reaching out to us, or speaking down to us?
Ask yourself,.....who was the last politician that truly gave you hope that there will a better future? Then look at the people standing behind them during their speeches and tell me if those people look like they would ride a moped.
There is an idea that this generation is filled with apathy about what is going on in the world. Prove them wrong. Vote your conscience.
