It Almost Didn’t Happen

On August 26, 2010, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution celebrates its 90th birthday. It was a long, hard battle fought by courageous women.

We should not take our right to vote for granted. Yet, so many Americans do not vote. What would these non-voting people do if they were told that they were prohibited to vote? Would they then be protesting? Shame on anyone that stays away from the voting booth on election day. It is not only your right to vote, it is your duty as a citizen to vote.

A great op-ed from Christine Stansall.

Happy 90th Birthday, 19th Amendment and thank you to the women that risked everything just for the right to vote.
