Today we took the boys to City Hall so we could vote. We did our best to explain the importance and process of voting, translating it all to fit a four-year-old’s mindset. I never saw my parents vote, and they didn’t talk much about it; I didn’t really have any political awareness at all until a few years ago. Even now, I’m not sure how to help things change or progress-- all I know to do is vote and write letters. It doesn’t seem enough. I feel helpless sometimes, politically. Is there anything We the People can do?
