We must be the change we wish to see in the world.
~Mahatma Gandhi

Whether you are from a blue state, red state, purple state, BIG state or small state... it is our duty as American citizens to VOTE. We owe it not only to ourselves, but to future generations to get out there and make our voices be heard this election.

If we truly want to see change it is up to us to make it happen. We can not get complacent and think to ourselves "my one little vote doesn't matter" I live in a fairly small community and in my precinct alone, there are over 300 eligible unregistered voters! Those are 300 voices that will not be heard, if they do not take action.

I urge those of you who are registered to double check your status. Have you moved recently- is it updated? You can find out easily here. If you are not registered, you can go here and do so. Most states require you be registered at least 30 days prior to an election that means OCTOBER 4th! To check your individual State requirements, check here.

If you have time find a local event where you can set up a table and register people to vote. It is one thing we have control over- our vote. The more voices we have out there taking action the more likely that change will happen. Talk to your neighbors, donate money if you can, wear a button, put up a yard sign. MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!

How will you end global poverty?

Please visit this website to urge the moderator of the first Presidential debate to ask the candidates a question regarding how they will deal with global poverty. This is something we, the United States, pledged to eradicate by 2015 as part of the Millennium Goals. Global poverty affects us all, rich and poor. This is too important of an issue to not take action on.

Thank you.
