The rain swelled and lessened, as did the line of people, standing dutifully in the raw, spitting day.
“How long?” A woman asked, leaning heavily on her cane.
“They’ll let you in,” I said, pointing. “You don’t need to stand in the long line.”
“What if they won’t? I don’t want to lose my place,” she fretted.
“Don’t worry,” a young hooded man motioned in direction of the building. “I’ll hold your spot.”
I smiled at him.
“Come,” I linked my arm in hers, round sticker prominent on my jacket “I’ll show you. I’m so happy you’re here to vote!”

Note: Thank you Rochelle for using my photo! 🙂 Yay hurray! (It was, indeed, taken during an election day, where people stood in the pouring rain for over an hour, as the line stretched along sidewalks and around the corner in my neighborhood. The above is a depiction of real events). If you are in the US and aren’t registered to vote yet, please do! And, when elections come – any election – Vote! Your voice matters. Don’t let anyone convince you it does not.
