Post-Election Roundup

Hi, everyone!

Well, I'm glad to report that my family and I survived Hurricane Sandy, the Presidential Election and the Nor'Easter.  What a week it's been!

I did my civic and patriotic duty, and I voted on Election Day.  It's never far from my mind the sacrifices that many women before me made, so that I could vote!

On that vein, I have two photos to share.

The first is one of a suffragette in England in 1910 getting beaten up by cops as she is protesting her lack of right to vote.



Pretty powerful stuff.

It should give us pause.  Whenever you are tempted to be cynical about voting or our elective process, think of what many were willing to do just to cast a ballot in the ballot box.

The second photo one I saw today online.


I admit I stared at this photo for about 10 minutes, mesmerized.

To me, this photo conveys a lot of information.  Most importantly, how we have so much more in common than not.  Something to think about.
