I voted

I voted today. I voted for......my great grandmother and grandfather who were immigrants from Russia and Hungary. Came over on the boat in the early 1900s. Landed at Ellis Island and then settled in Maryland.
I voted for my great grandmother who died in 1920 before she ever got a chance to vote. I voted for my the men in my family who have fought in every single war our country has ever known. I voted for Susuan B Anthony, who fought for me as a woman to have a voice in our political system.
I voted for me, for my rights as a citizen, as a woman, as an American.
