You Didn't Notice – Because I Was Quiet

I am smiling as I watch the election returns.

I have about 150 Facebook friends.

About 5% of my friends are extremely vocal about politics.

About 2% of my friends are mildly vocal about politics.

That leaves 93% of us who are not willing to engage.

Silence on Facebook doesn’t mean we do not think, though. And it doesn’t mean we do not vote.

That’s what I love about Election Day.

I don’t have to tell my vocal friends that I disagree with them. And I don’t have to argue with them.

On Election Day, I get the same number of votes as each of them gets. One.

My voice is equal to theirs. Not as loud. Not as irate. But equal.

I am smiling.
