VOTE

I think it is important that I share this. This is my blog and I want it to showcase what is important to me. 

What a privilege it is to be able to vote. I am standing up for what I know to be right for me based on my experiences, education, arts career, values, etc. I am voting in favor of compassion and equality. I am voting because my dad/family members were/are military and I refuse to support someone who bashes dead soldiers while also having been a draft dodger (a friend danced 6 shows a day in heels on painful bone spurs FYI). I am voting for my uncle who died of Covid. It is not a “hoax.” I am voting to continue to make my own decisions for MY body. I am voting for healthcare. I am voting in favor of the arts; my safe place, job, and escape. I am voting because climate change is so real and I respect our planet. I fear having a family in this current climate and worry we are about to be set back 100 years. Despite having traveled to so many wonderful countries, there is no place like the USA. I want to continue to be proud to be from here. I am a female artist with friends from all walks of life. I do not think I am better than anyone else. We are not being lead as if we are one country and it has to stop. Don’t be surprised by this post. You are free to make your own choice as well based on your beliefs and experiences. Just vote. And no matter what, be a kind human.
