A Plea to Vote – Letter to the Editor

A plea to Vote
It is not a mere coincidence
That the word vote
Rhymes with hope
After all
Each new election is an opportunity
A chance to wipe the slate clean
And start all over again
Or an affirmation
That we are on the right path

However you see it

A vote is a vote
For democracy
For all that is right in the world
Strange how a small piece of paper
A ballot
Can overcome the most fearful of weapons
And silence
All those calling for hate
Remember, it is not too late
To cast your hope!
