Election Eve

Driving in this morning the sun peaked through a bank of grey clouds which dispersed the light. It looked much like I always imagined it would look like at the dawn of time. The wind kicked up and the autumn leaves started turning loose in a shower that looked like crimson snowflakes.
The cold rain moved in late this afternoon and between my swishing wiper blades it looked like winter.
Tomorrow is election day. I'm not sure about you, but I'll be glad when it's over. Not only have we been bombarded on the TV with negative ads from both parties, but we have also been getting a ton of phone calls...usually while we're eating.
I find myself becoming discouraged. I long for politicians that work for us instead of spending ALL their time working on getting re-elected....afraid to make an unpopular stand for fear that the oil industry or the drug industry or the gun industry or the farmers might not approve.
I'm concerned about our future and the future of our children. But like the rain tomorrow - chances of me voting is 100%.
