PARTICIPATING IN HISTORY

Oct 18th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

In less than three weeks now, most of us seniors will have participated in a huge historic event. First of all, it is no small matter to take the initiative to vote. In most democratic countries of the world this is a privilege and obligation that falls on its citizenry. To take it seriously means one has some understanding of the role and place of politics. It further means that having a world view that includes single individuals has unusual significance.

For all the attempts to negatively influence its outcome, this election stands as singularly critical in the historic roll call of national events. We will be about deciding what direction this country will take, what economic philosophy will be affirmed, what political persuasion will be given the most influence.
