She's 18. A Woman. Clear about what she believes in and prepared to take a stand. And She's voting in her very first Australian election today and I'm so proud that this child I birthed takes her role as a citizen so seriously. It's no surprise where my vote will go; cut me and I bleed Greens. Nor is it a surprise how the Husband votes (snigger). Despite growing up with two politically polar opposites for parents, our child knows her own mind.
It has it's flaws but I am so very grateful for living in a Democracy and grateful for the Women and Men who have fought through the ages that I may have the right to cast my vote how I choose today.
Blessings and clarity to all xxx
Edited to add: G returned back from the Polling Booth and said "I voted Below the line! Dad said that I should have hurried up and I told him how important it was to vote below the line!" I'm even more puffed up with pride now!
