September 25: National Voter Registration Day

Dear fellow Americans,

September 25 is national voter registration day; a day for all Americans to celebrate their right to influence government, and for many, the first time to exercise that right. For others, it is an opportunity to engage the public and to educate them on voting law and its history. One would hope that every American, once eligible, would seek to exercise their right to register, yet “In 2008, 6 million Americans told the U.S. Census that they did not vote because they did not know how to register or they missed their state’s voter registration deadline” (yourdailyjournal.com). I find this disconcerting considering our country’s history and the men and women who have fought and died for the right to have a voice in the political process. It is this process that shapes the policies that govern every facet of our lives. In the words of political theorists and activists Thomas Paine, “Voting is a right from which all other rights spring.” Our country has progressed through the decades to incorporate voting rights to individuals of every race, sex, and disability. And it is my hope that those that read this, come away with a better understanding of the imperative and responsibility of all Americans to play an active role in our democracy, lest we lose control of it.

If you are eligible to vote and want to register, you are welcome to come to the Resource Center for Accessible Living (RCAL) at 727 Ulster Ave., Kingston  NY12401.

  2. Well said. Just put in my absentee ballot request a couple days ago.

  3. Alright, mums. Time for just a little pep speak. It’s true that you must don relaxing footwear if you’re out with your offspring, but really — does it have to become big honkin’ whitened sneakers in which create nothing to your own costume? You’re mother. Mothers and dads include specified desires. Comfy shoes and boots is truly one of these demands. But model has no to look out of the home window because you have to chase just after your children. When I’d been by helping cover their our son last week I personally discovered higher than a number of moms who have been fairly effectively dressed up, then again received on their own major light sneaks that simply needed the appearance to your brand-new (frumpy) position. These footwear, when worn out by using everything othere as compared with sweatpants, yell "I do not love buying and selling domains look". Today hold on tight a little tiny. Practical goal stating that caring regarding your overall look is priority listed here. Even so was saying that, as being a fast paced mom, it’s important to create a couple of minutes, or maybe sometimes even seconds, from a morning to try and do tiny problems that produce you feel thigh and also be talking to by yourself. How would you really feel if you find yourself donning a person’s sneakers? It really is skeptical that you just experience magnificent and assured. The very next time put forth get dressed, have you thought to slip on quite a few pretty footwear that permit you to pursue after ones hectic kids plus browse through your entire day without difficulty, whilst nonetheless looking positive? You are going to really feel a bit more talking to all by yourself, that carries a lot much more self confidence. Casual condominiums can be a superb alternative to popular tennis shoes with days gone by wasted for the play ground, the particular art gallery or running errands. It seems to me these were invented used only for occupied mothers. This specific a mix of both flat/sneaker marries good each and provide women of all ages a classy, yet at ease running shoe seems wonderful by using jeans along with skirts along with gowns. Thus leave ones major whitened shoes for the gym as well as breeze upward manboobs or a couple of all these great rentals. Along with rates beginning around $20, these are less expensive than numerous athletic shoes, nevertheless they’re going to cause you to feel a tad bit more trendy as well!
