Today is Election Day in the United States. Many voters have already casted their ballets via early voting.
In Framingham, Massachusetts, there was a long line at the Keefe Technical School which is our local polling place. It took 25 minutes to cast our votes this morning.
There was someone that cut in front of me in line that didn’t even know which polling place they should be in. Take some time and learn where your polling place is, and plan to visit there often! It’s 2016, there’s plenty of resources available to help you find your local polling place.
Reguardless of who wins the Presidential race, it will be a historical win.
I updated American's Creed from the Boy Scout Manual, I am sure that William Tyler Page wouldn’t object to this version.
I believe in
the United States of America as a
Government of the people, by the people, for the people;
who just powers are derived from the consent of the government;
a democracy in a republic;
a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States;
a perfect Union, one and inseparable;
established under those principles of freedom, equality, justice,
and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their
lives and fortunes.
I therefor believe it is my duty to my country
to love it;
to support its Constitution;
to obey its laws;
to respect its flag;
to fully protect it’s national secrets and
to defend it against all enemies.
The original American Creed was developed by William Tyler Page in 1917. It is a brief, clear statement of American traditions and ideals, as expressed by leading American statesmen and writers.
