Democracy In Action: Take A Deep Breath

So, this post would probably have been more helpful a few weeks ago, but it’s something that’s been rattling around in my head and today feels like the right day for it… By all means, you should all exercise your right as an American citizen and go vote today, for whichever candidate you feel is best.
