Well, we vote tomorrow here in America. If you don't live in this country, it's hard to explain how exhausted we are by our years' long process of primaries and then the general election. It just goes on forever. We have to laugh or we'll cry, right? Maybe we'll scream.
Here at AofA, as a non-profit (and in an effort to maintain our sanity) we don't discuss politics as a rule. We certainly don't declare our loathing or loving for any candidate in any office from dog catcher to Commander-in-Chief.
I've seen friendships destroyed on social media over this election. Civility has been kicked to the curb. Emotions are running high.
One thing we can probably agree upon, however, is that real issues facing Americans have taken a backseat to high drama accusations. And this serves none of us.
Autism has been all but ignored.
Perhaps that's a good thing, since we know that just when we think the government's handling of the epidemic could not get any worse, the numbers rise. Families falter.
In 36 hours we'll have a new President-elect. Please hold good thoughts that the process goes smoothly, safely and that we don't suffer cyber or other attacks. Get out and vote. However you choose. Don't ignore your right to vote.
If you choose to comment - please don't bother sniping about the candidates. We can turn on the any TV channel for that.
