the calm before the election storm

tomorrow marks a monumental day in america every 4 years - the election of the commander-in-chief. as a women's studies graduate, i'm always saddened to hear that single women are a missing population at the polls. this year, apparently, it is expected to be different and i applaude women for making this a priority. yes, the lines may be long. yes, you may not agree 100% with either candidate. yes, it is hard to know who actually IS telling the truth. yes, there ARE plenty of other people out voting. yes, they both promise to do a better job than the other. however, this is your chance to share your voice. how powerful is that? i love the quote, "everyone dreams of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing oneself." i think that is a gentle reminder that in order to change the world, we must not give our voice to others, we must take a stand, we must support the candidate that resonates most with our values, and we must get our bums out tomorrow and VOTE!! for every student who wears their "i voted" sticker to the studio on november 2, you will receive a FREE yoga class that day.
