A number of you commented on my blog yesterday that you are already good people who already treat everyone with kindness.
And I've got no doubt that's so.
There are good folks at Spark People. Kind folks.
There are good folks in the United States. Kind folks.
But: although the November 3 2020 American election will profoundly affect people all over the world, only the good kind folks in the USA get a vote.
So please: those of you entitled to vote, exercise your vote. Using whatever means to vote is possible for you: whether in person, or early mail-in ballot.
Then: do all you can to ensure that your vote is counted.
The right to vote is a precious right. But not just a right. It's also -- now, perhaps more than ever before in recent history -- a huge responsibility.
[Was that a slip up, as noted by ONEKIDSMOM below, when I wrote, "only the good kind folks in the USA get a vote"? Uh, no. As I responded to her:
"Yup -- I was assuming that ALL of the people in the USA are kind and good -- or at least capable of being kind and good.
And in fact I do believe that.
Nobody is unrelievedly evil or entirely self-interested.
No matter what we've done in the past, at any given moment we are capable of acting NOW with pure kindness and goodness."]
