I’ve now been a US citizen for five years. This country has changed a lot in that time. Am I still glad to be part of it? Yes. Would I like it to improve? Yes.
Improvement requires improved government at city, county, state, and national levels. A citizenry gets the government it deserves. If we think we deserve better, then we have to do some work.
The work is voting. It’s up to me and every other citizen who can vote to do so. If you want things to change, make sure you’re registered to vote and then vote. Ask your friends and family if they’re registered. Remind them to register. Remind them to vote. Ask your colleagues if they’re registered. Remind them to register. Remind them to vote.
There are privileges associated with citizenship but also duties. Perform your civic duty. Inform yourself. Vote.
