When you vote, it means that men don’t have all the power and control. It is about believing in yourself. It is about taking responsibility. I have concern when responsibility is not taken over actions. I also have concerns when the labeling of the term “lazy” is used but is not acted upon. Making excuses has become a cultural habit, from work, to school, to everyday life. We were brought up this way as children. When we were asked why we did something wrong, we were encouraged to make an excuse. I say that we need to stop this. Responsibility means that you have power. It means that you are worthy, it means that you are important, it means that you are trusted, and it means that you belong. This should be thought of as one of the greatest honors a human being can hold. We seem to fear responsibility because of the potential of being known as a failure. But so what if you regret electing someone? Human’s make mistakes. We learn and we grow. Our species is not stagnated, we are a moving and ever flowing machine. A few wrong votes does not stop us there. What matters is that you did something. It does not matter what you did. You have the power to do something women in the 1920’s long-fought for. So don’t shame away from responsibility. Instead, use it to change yourself. Use it to change the world.
