PLEASE, take the time

Tuesday is a very import day.  It is the day were we as Americans get to exercise our right to vote.  I personally do not want to know which candidate you favor.  All I want is to know that you have voted.  I have traveled the world, seen oppression and restricted freedoms.  America is not perfect in any way shape or form.  But we do have it better than many countries around the world.  Plus I personally think if you are not willing to vote then you have no right to complain afterwards when you do not like the choice.

My website Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at

    I love this post! Thank you for posting it. I think you worded it very very well. Our country isn’t perfect, but it is ours and we need to appreciate that we have the right to speak up. I voted. I have a voice and I used it. I hope a huge majority of my fellow Americans used their voices as well, regardless of whom they voted for. I have said for years ‘if you don’t exercise your right to vote, you forfeit the right to complain’.
