I just watched a movie about the women’s suffragette movement. I think too many of us have forgotten or just started taking for granted how important our right to vote is. The last presidential election should have woken us up, but it’s tempting now unless you’re one who still believes the “big lie” to think it’s all over; it was a clean, fair election, period. The democracy is safe.
