I try very hard to remain apolitical in this space despite being a bit of a political junky. And while I am stepping away from writing about wine today, I hope my message today is still apolitical:
It is perhaps a simple act (although nothing seems to be simple these days), but it is vital to the health of this democracy. Obviously, I hope that you vote for the candidate that I selected two weeks ago, but even if you don’t I firmly believe that is the duty of each citizen to partake in the most fundamental tenet of democracy.
I plan on returning to writing about wine again tomorrow, but today I am hopeful for the future of this country. Hopeful that the country will find a way to come together and confront the problems that we face. Many will say that my “hope” is more of a pipe dream, but I am a firm believer in this country and its citizens. So if you have not already, please grab your mask, head to your polling place, and vote.
Be careful what you wish for. 😉
