My Country Tis of Thee

"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual -- or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country." --Samuel Adams

What better way to spend voting morning than with two first time voters, one of which is a newly retired United States Marine? Robin, Mr. Marine Andrew, and I hit our polling spot bright and early. They were very patient with my photo taking antics....thanks guys!

How cool is it that Starbucks was giving out free drip coffee today? What is wrong with these pictures?...A tattooed ex-Marine orders a Strawberries and Cream Fu-fu drink...Andrew you are still as weird as ever! Thank you for your service, preserving my freedom to vote and speak my mind...I am ever grateful for the sacrifices you have made!

way to rock the voting. Oh, and I second the thanks to Andrew. Military men/women truly rock. I could never do it, and I am proud of and thankful to those who can.
