May your new year be filled with blessings. May you find small things to make you glad and keep your incentive to continue, even in the midst of trials and struggles that may come.
May God comfort you in sorrow, ease your pain with each new moment, and bring you to a place of peace in your heart.

Or even before, by absentee ballot! You may say that it "won't do any good"... that it's gonna be the "same old ball game, just different players" bit, but - how would you ever know that if you don't exercise your right to vote OUT the one you don't want, or IN the one that you do?
You still have that right in our country. One of these days you could awaken to a whole new very unfamiliar world where you don't. DON'T BLOW IT!! If your guy wins, fine...if he doesn't, fine. You've done your part.
If everyone who had a hopeless and defeatist attitude took the stand that it won't do any good anyway and failed to vote, I guess they'd eventually find it a self-prophecy of sorts. Because their vote may have counted for the better... DON'T let anything sway your determination to say something with a ballot. For most of us, it's the only voice we have (whether you think it helps or not). It may or may not change things that have been so haywire for so long, but if you don't go to the polls to have a say, then don't sit around long after bemoaning the "sad state of affairs" that may or may not be happening afterwards. If you didn't care enough to get out and cast a vote, you have no right to grumble.
Do yourself a favor and do it anyway. (VOTE) that is.
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
