I checked out "Horton Hears a Who" (by Dr. Seuss) from the library to read to my children. With each rereading, I am further struck by the vital importance of a lone, additional voice. Now is the time, folks! Now is the time to get caught up on what is going on in the political world around you, decide what you want done, and act accordingly. Prepare to vote. Vote. Contact your representatives. Maybe even become involved locally. If you don't, don't bother to complain about the quality or corruption of your leaders because you didn't bother to do your part. Apathy on the part of voters has in part led to the current level of corruption and misrepresentation in government today. The other part being ignorance and/or that people believe a biased media. Read both sides.
