Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me It Was So Great?

After getting emails for 50 million weeks telling me to vote; I did! And you know what? I don't know why I haven't been voting all along.

Even though I went through unit after unit of US history and government; I don't think I understood until tonight why people fight so long and hard for the right to vote. Now I finally understand what all the fuss is about.

It gave me this great feeling that I mattered and contributed something worthwhile to the world. It sounds weird but it made me feel like a Real Person. Like I said, it sounds weird.
