Earlier this evening, I was a little surprised that my 5 year old son responded with so much enthusiasm when I called out, "Time to Vote!"
He put on his boots and he raced to the front door.
My heart swelled with pride that he was taking such a keen interest in the democratic process.
Moments later, we arrived at the polling station. "Where's the ocean?" he said. "Where's the ocean? I wanna boat!"
Hurray for all the people who didn't boat tonight and managed to vote instead. It counts.
