ELECTION: Hopeful sign from a young nonvoter

As I drive through my neighborhood, I observe the various campaign signs. What I have noticed while driving a particular street is that one day you see a sign supporting a candidate, and then the next day you don’t. The sign is gone.

It never occurred to me that someone with opposing views would steal these signs. It became clear when I noticed one of my neighbors carrying a newly removed campaign sign heading towards her home that yes, fair play is not being practiced by some.

To balance the scale a bit, a young man yesterday said to me, ” I am so mad that I am a few months short of being able to vote. I know that this is the most important election that we will ever have.”

This remark from a young person has given me hope. My hope is that the honest folks outnumber the less righteous.
