From 2016: “After watching the debates and talking about the election in school, Julia is very much into it. She fished out an old Obama button from some treasure trove and is wearing it along with two new Hillary buttons. Her assignment for Tuesday is to color a map as results come in. She told me that she is going to color the whole thing blue before any results come in. Magical thinking to be sure, but she’s got the right idea.”
2020: Julia can vote! And vote we did at the kitchen table on Saturday after which we drove down to the town hall and dropped our votes in the assigned box. There was an older man who did it before we did and we applauded him. The young woman who was behind us applauded us. We are all in this together.
