Queenager Wisdom of the week with Joan Colier
I’ve been contemplating a few words of wisdom to share and the subject of “voting” keeps flooding my mind. So here are a few thoughts I have about this topic. A lot of powerful words were shared this week at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) that dealt with race relations in America, the Pandemic, protesting, the inhumane killing of Black citizens, friends, family, etc. I guess with the current state of the United States and the world, in general, most of us will continue to hear and see things that will scare us, feel threatening, frustrate us and even anger us. Unfortunately, this is the current state of the world we presently live in.
The first time I went to the polls I was 18 years old. What a thrill… and no matter who was on the ticket I still voted! None of the candidates were perfect, but we had to listen carefully and do the homework to see where they stood on all the important issues. I pray and hope that all, who are of age, take the time to VOTE! I know 2020 has been an extremely difficult and disappointing year for many of us. But the change we need can only take place if we stand together, vote together, and come together in unity as one people determined to make our country a better place for all of us. Whether you are 18 or 80 let’s do this! Let’s be the united voice by making a choice that works for us all. – Joan Colier
