How important is voting in this election to you? For this woman, it was her final act.

They don't know what the law is there yet -- dunno if it will be printed when they do find out. But she doesn't know that it might not be counted; she knew she had voted before she died, and while I'd sure like to see her vote counted, I think that being able to cast her vote gave her some peace.

Re: a very accurate representation of my thoughts
It's a quarter-horse. If I have credit for it, it's on my pictures, and it's gankable.

CNN had a story last weekend about a 106 year old black woman living in Florida. The interviewer asked her what she was looking forward to, and she said...

"I'm hoping to live long enough to see a black man elected President. After that, then I'm not quite sure."

More evidence that this is a terrifically important election for a lot of people. I'm certainly watching closely and convincing everyone I can to go vote.

If I were near death, I'd want to vote very strongly.

Not sure now. The polyamory group, maybe? I friended you a while ago as kinzokutaka, but I'm not sure I ever got around to saying Hello. *^_^*

Re: Happy birthday!
Ah. I do remember that, but don't generally add someone till they talk to me or read my user info. So I didn't look into who you were till you said something. :^D

Re: Happy birthday!
hee! Yeah. I usually friend people I find interesting, but generally don't comment until I have something to say. Usually birthday wishes give me a good excuse. B^)
