Youth gone mild?

Nothing to add, really. Simply wanted to remind people that 84 years ago today, the 19th Amendment was added to our Constitution, giving American women the right to vote. Just think for a minute how hard and long women had to campaign for the simple right to vote. Now think about how many people don't even bother to exercise that right, especially younger folks. I've met too many kids who say, "my vote doesn't really matter;" and that may be true, but if every person who thought along those lines went to the booths on voting day, it would make a HUGE difference.
It's not hard. Make yourself heard.
I'll get off my soapbox now.
