Vote tomorrow!

 "Do what you can within reach of your arm . . . because anything you touch is part of a tapestry that reaches far and wide, even unto the highest and mightiest seats of power."

William Rivers Pitt

Tomorrow is Tuesday and local election day here in Monmouth.  I like this quote because it not only comments on the power of the ballot, but also on the importance of each person doing what they can for their community, their state, and their country.  Each small effort is a part of the whole whether it is voting, serving on a volunteer committee, or picking up a piece of trash on the street in front of your house.

There is a thing called "the common good" that we seem to be on the verge of losing when only our own comfort and convenience and mindset becomes preeminent.

So think Spring and do vote.
