Day 12

Today I saw Democracy in action. Every March, in our small town in northern NH, Town Meeting is held. This is where funds are raised and dispersed. We get to listen to everybody’s opinions, and believe me, there are plenty of opinions, as well as numerous methods for getting the point across…. Rambling, whispering, pleading, cajoling, etc. (Maybe it is better the kids don’t usually come and see all of this.) But finally votes are voiced “yea, nay” and the majority rules. This leaves some happy, some frustrated, but it is a privilege to be part of the process.
Now let’s see if this can happen on the national level?
