Many people say, “I’m just one person”. What many people don’t realize is that one accounts for a whole group of people. With the way the world is today it is important now more than ever for all of us to stand up and vote. Exercise our rights as the American people to be heard and to make a difference in our world, the world we are leaving to our children.
Voting isn’t just important because it’s our duty as Americans. It is also our right and obligation to the United states. We as a people have a say so in the decisions throughout the political world. Misinformation has led to many young people thinking that there is no reason to waste their time in politics, but, that’s the problem! The more we take on this lazy mindset of not making a difference the further this world falls from the hands of the people into the hands of the government.
All of the different issues at hand we have some control over. Voting is not about who becomes the next President of The United States or whose in office. Voting also resides on a much smaller scale as well such as the schools, our communities, our jobs, families, and our lives in general.
Every year we are bombarded with slogans and ad campaigns to many different issues we are facing, from politicians in office to school dress codes. That’s where we as Americans need to step up and make a difference instead of just having opinions how things should change, stand up and be the start needed to make change. Take the time to research different issues in your community and your country. Read, learn how you can take charge starting with voting. If everyone that believes they are no one would learn the issues we are faced with and take the time to vote and allow themselves to be heard it would make a big difference in the outcome of the people.
It’s time as Americans, as a whole, stand up for this country and teach our young and old alike how important it is to vote. Leave a country worth living in to our future generations.
