We voted like our lives and country depend on it

I posted this photo on social media the other day of Max mailing off an election ballot. He won't be of legal voting age until December, so we gave him the honor of dropping ours into our town's official mailbox.

We voted for Joe Biden, or Bo Jiden, as Ben calls him.  

We believe this country desperately needs a change in leadership. The past four years have divided the U.S. and stirred up hatred in so many ways. This is not the America we have known and loved. 

We want a president who can steer America out of this pandemic, and we trust that Joe Biden has the ethics and smarts to do so. Yesterday, White House coronavirus coordinator Deborah L. Birx, M.D., warned President Trump in a memo that the pandemic is entering a new and "deadly" phase that requires a more aggressive approach. Joe Biden believes in science. Joe Biden has a plan

We want a leader who also has a plan to help Americans with disabilities during this crisis. Joe Biden has a plan

We want a leader who cares about LGBTQ+ rights, BIPOC rights, immigrant families' rights, ALL THE PEOPLE AND ALL THE RIGHTS.

We want a leader with integrity. The man who cries wolf about fake news is the most prolific creator of it.

We want a leader who is for the people, not for himself. The fact that our president held rallies—aka super-spreader events—during a pandemic to get himself re-elected speaks for itself. 

We want a leader with a moral compass. 

We want a leader who leads not with disrespect, derision or defensiveness (see: Twitter) but with fairness, cohesiveness and confidence. 

We want a leader who will be a role model for children and adults.

We are sick and tired of the ignorance, incompetence, arrogance and awfulness.

We want to live in The United States, once again.

We voted with all our heart and all our hope.  



  1. Here's hoping we wake up to a new day tomorrow! Good for you and your family for exercising your right to vote!

  3. Do you mind if I steal Bo Jiden? I love it.

  4. Good choice, in my opinion! I very much hope that whatever the outcome, in the coming months we will also get some reliable data on how people with disabilities votes. It feels like there are a lot of assumptions out there about disabled voters’ politics that may need to be debunked and dealt with.


Thanks for sharing!
