The race to the white house finally comes to an end today. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are going to face off in one of the most talked elections in history. After months of vicious campaigning by both candidates, Americans are getting in line to vote at various voting stations for their Commander in Chief, a person whom they can trust to lead the country. If you have the right to vote, don't take it for granted. Even if you may not like either Trump or Clinton, there is no reason to not vote. To many, it is definitely a tough choice this year, but that doesn't give you any reason to sit out.
There are many people who are currently living in this country do not have the right to vote. As an immigrant coming to the country for school and work, no matter how hard we work or how much taxes we pay, we do not have the right to vote. Regardless of the outcome, we will all be affected by it.
Vote, because your ballot counts not just for you but for the rest of the people in America who don't have the right to vote.
Vote, because your vote matters for the future of America and your next generation.
Vote, because it is your right and privilege!
As American citizens, besides having the right to vote, it is also your responsibility and duty to be informed before you vote. This is one of the craziest election. We are constantly being bombarded with stories that contradict each other. Here are some resources to help you better inform yourself before you cast your vote.
No matter who wins in this election, I pray that God will work with the elected president for the greater good of the nation. Fill them with love for their country. For the voters, I pray that God will provide them the wisdom as they cast their votes today.
Regardless of what the outcome will be, remember that our hope should be in Jesus Christ.
