I often think about this quote from Mother Teresa:
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to one another.
When we exercise our vote today (I hope most will be able to participate!) I also hope we will remember that we belong to one another. Voting is one way we do that.
It is, however, only one way we do that. Movement-building toward collective change requires much more than a vote every 2 to 4 years. (Maybe more about that later in the week).
Nevertheless, today matters a great deal. Praying for a safe and peaceful day.
