Today is Super Tuesday 2008, which some have dubbed "national primary day." Voters in 24 states are heading to the polls. My state is one of the states that participates in Super Tuesday, and I'm heading to the polls soon.
When I was sworn in as a new citizen of my wonderful new country, the United States of America, I finally gained full membership in American society, and got the right to vote. And by pledging allegiance and loyalty to my new country, I became an American by choice. That was many years ago. But I still remember that day; it was one of the proudest days of my life. And since that day, I have never failed to exercise my right to vote. God bless the United States of America, where free people have a say in their governement!
Exercise your right to vote today. And have a wonderful day.
Super Tuesday turned into Super Scary Tuesday night, in my region, and many of the surrounding areas. We had a tornado warning around 8 PM, and my son called to tell me to get into the basement. Of course, I did. Lots of thunder, lightening and rain came at us, but the wind never got as fierce as last week. By 9 PM, the warning had been lifted, although some thunderstorms continued for some time. By the time I got into bed, things were improving. We didn't have any damage in our area, that I know of, but many folks in surrounding areas and states didn't fare as well, and my prayers are with all those people this morning. God bless them, as they deal with the tragedy of lost lives and damaged property!
