I’m not participating in “Blackout Tuesday” and here’s why…
Simply put, I don’t believe in posting a picture or making a ‘statement’ on social media.
If you look at my Facebook history, you won’t see cover photos or frames from any event except for one. That one was a 9/11 remembrance frame that I used in 2019 as a reminder to myself of a time when the United States of America was, for one unforgettable moment in my life, actually united.
What I do believe in, is taking action to enact changes where I see need for improvement. And you know how I do that?
And before I vote, I research.
I look into the history of each person on the ballot, not just their current ‘talking points.’ I go back and see what they supported in the past and if they are actually practicing what they preach.
So, no, I will not be participating in Blackout Tuesday or any other such event.
What I will do is vote for the people that I believe can help make my city, my state, and my country a better place for all it’s citizens.
If you’d like to discuss this, or other topics, I’d be more than happy to do so in the comments section of this post. All that I ask is that people keep things civil. We don’t have to agree with each other to be kind to one another.
