Electing to participate
Voting is a right afforded by citizenship in my country. And, regardless of the rhetoric that my individual vote does not matter, my decision to vote does matter.
I am an educator. I have a responsibility to think, to challenge my own thinking, to encourage others to think, and to engage in respectful, substantive discourse about issues that matter. Participating fully in both my rights and my responsibilities is part of being a parent, a teacher, and a citizen.
