It's been a full week since the U.S. national elections. Hopefully we've all caught our breath and have come to terms with however things turned out.
Personally, I'm just glad that this election cycle is done and over with. It was getting to the point that I just wanted everyone to sit down and be quiet. But of course, there are those eager folks who are already talking about 2016 and not keeping their minds on the business at hand.
To those that voted [in the U.S.] I'm glad that you participated in the process of democracy. If you didn't get out there and vote, you have no place complaining about how government is being run. You had your chance to have your voice be heard and that's certainly a lot more than some folks in other countries get.
I'm sure I've said it at least once here in the journal; where ever you may live, if you have the opportunity to have a voice in your government's development, by all means do so . . . get out there and vote, write your representatives, speak-up and be heard. Government by the people, for the people — it's a beautiful thing.
