Votes-for-Women-portrayers

In this day and age when elections become news years (literally!) before the actual voting date, it’s weird to think there was a time when women weren’t allowed to vote. That is something I definitely take for granted. I have not consistently voted in all elections, but I’ve never missed a presidential election. As soon as my son was eligible to vote, I made sure he voted. It happened to be the first time Barack Obama was elected and I actually got a little verklempt driving home from my polling place. I remember the civil rights movement. I remember when I was 7 years old seeing a sign on a laundromat when we lived in Chamblee, Georgia that said “Whites Only”. (Yes, I thought it meant you could only wash white clothes there and boy, that’s gotta be inconvenient for adults.)

Now I’ve had the opportunity to vote for an African American (twice!) and my Korean-born US citizen son voted in his first election. So yeah, I got a little misty-eyed. Yes, I’m a sap. And I celebrate my sappy-ness!

Um, where was I?
