VOTE. I encourage you, if you live in one of 14 states with primaries today, Super Tuesday, to vote.
This is not a political post. This is simply a strong suggestion that you exercise your right in our democracy.
As I pondered this subject, I was reminded of an exhibit, “Selma to Montgomery: Marching Along the Voting Rights Trail,” which I viewed at St. Olaf College in Northfield in April 2015. The 45 black-and-white images of the 1965 Civil Rights Movement by photographer Stephen Somerstein and more impressed upon me the importance of the right to vote.
And then, go to your polling place and vote. It’s your right and your responsibility.
