November in America traditionally is a time for reflecting on the many things for which we are thankful. In that respect, I was glad to see such strong participation, especially by younger voters, in Tuesday’s election. Although politics in the United States recently has been marked by cultural and generational clashes, I feel heartened that so many people are not giving up, but are actively working to bring the country together and to build a society where our differences are respected and valued.

  1. You are so right Meg, it was great to see so many people turn out to vote. I think people realized that they really need to, for things need to change, we need to come together! I hope the results of the election will bring positive results in the future!

    • Yes — we can’t just wait for things to get better on their own or for someone else to do everything, and I agree with you that many people have realized that now.

      • Exactly! People can’t just keep complaining and expecting things to change! I wish Jaxon had so much magic that he could just make things change but…..! LOL!

  2. A wonderful write-up Meg.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. November is definitely a reflective time — a time to reflect on our journey, take “stock” of where we are on that path, and opportunities to evaluate and/or create plans or ideas to improve “ourselves” and our world — one ripple at a time. Thank you for sharing, Meg!
