Voting With My Kids


I took my girls with me before school to vote this morning. it was a good opportunity to teach them about how one way we show our hakaras hatov, our appreciation, for living in a great country that lets us choose our own leaders is by voting. My 9 year old moved the switch to vote for my Ethics professor for State Senate and my 6 year old pulled the lever to register our votes. It was a great quality time and educational experience.

I have great memories of my childhood, going to vote with my father...

I am so glad to hear you educating your children on the importance of voting. People before us have fought a good battle getting the right to vote. Not voting is an insult in their struggle on our behalf. No voting is an insult to all those other nations who do not have that right.

Too bad our ethics professor (not related, btw) got rocked in the election!
