With great power comes great responsibility — to vote. To paraphrase John Kennedy’s speech about going to the moon, we choose to go to the polls not because it is easy but because it is hard and because that goal of being counted serves the best of our energies and skills, a challenge we are willing to accept for the progress of all people.
There will be long lines. It will be hot, it might rain and there won’t be a bathroom available. There might be cases of fraud and identity theft. But whether the election becomes a force for good or ill depends on us and our involvement in the process.
