The Importance of Voting!


Most people think of Thanksgiving when they hear someone say, November. What else is important about November? For some it may be decorations and starting their holiday shopping and preparations but what should be at the top of everyone's list is VOTING! November 6th is such an important day for our country! I'm sure everyone sees the signs on the side of the road and all of the political commercials and yes, they can be very annoying! 

It is so crucial to do your research on each candidate for each electing office. Information is so readily available that there is no excuse to not be informed of who shares your same views and opinions for your community, county, state and country! You can simply go to VoteUSA.org, Vote411.org and VoteSmart.org to look up your state and county and get information on the ballot. You can even register and print off a sample ballot to take with you to the polls and be totally prepared! 

Some people think their vote doesn't count or so many people will vote that it doesn't matter if they do or don't. That is so untrue! Some offices can be elected by less than TEN votes! A commissioner's office in Florida, 2016, was placed in their position by only five votes. That's like one family driving to the polls together and placing that person in office for their community. That is how important it is to go out and vote. So many men and women fought for our right to vote and not too long ago did African Americans and women earn their right to go to the polls. Women gained the ability to help decide the course of their communities, states and country in 1920 and even closer to today did African Americans earn their right to vote in 1965! 

We owe it to those that fought for our freedoms and those that worked so hard to give that right to everyone so they can GET OUT AND VOTE!

A New Holiday?


Losing a loved one is hard for children as well as adults. The finality of it is hard to accept and the memories they leave behind are all we have to remember them. Many countries around the world celebrate a holiday called, El Dia de Los Muertos also known as, the Day of the Dead. This holiday has been celebrated for over 2500 years and focuses on the souls of loved ones visiting the living and celebrating the life they lived with food, music, flowers, pictures and wonderful stories of those that have passed. Dia de Muertos turns the outlook of death into a celebratory event full of laughter, thanksgiving and even joyous events like parades! Not only will you find delicious food in the towns that celebrate but you will also see many people dressed in skeleton costumes and painted faces like Calavaera or Sugar Skulls! Many families take days to prepare their ofrenda or alter with photographs of the deceased, candles, food, orange and yellow marigolds and even items of their family members. Most will even scatter orange petals on the ground to guide the other world visitors to their homes or the cemetery.


What a beautiful and honorable way to cope as well as commemorate a loved one's life! Death is a hard concept at any age but with such a lovely holiday it makes it into a family oriented occasion building a strong bond between family and friends. If you do not already celebrate Dia de Muertos maybe it could be a new cultural experience to share with your family. El Dia de Los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd.
