I got into bed tonight around 8 p.m. and was sleep for a couple of hours. Before rolling over and going back to sleep, I thought I would remind you to exercise your right to vote on November 3, 2020.
My sons and I did a video to encourage people to vote for Education Post a couple weeks ago, and I already voted early. Mr. Barnes is voting tomorrow on Election Day. If you have not voted yet, go vote. Even if you don’t care about the presidential election, you should care about the local elections. They directly and quickly impact your life.
Regardless of the outcome of the elections from national to local, please do not give up hope. My hope is not tied up in the White House. Instead focus on your locus of control and other people who will stand by you. I’m aware that businesses across the U.S. are boarding up in case there is civil unrest. I even heard people joking that there may be a race war. I’m not feeding into any of that.
People who voted for a candidate that loses might be upset. If you end up being that person, think before you act. Will your actions have consequences later?
I already have check-ins scheduled with different people throughout the week after Election Day. If you know people who are anxious, check on them.
For the presidential election, we might be waiting for some time. I agree with Leslie Odom that we should “Wait for it” … look y’all know I can’t resist getting Hamilton into something I write.
With that, I’m going back to sleep.
