Did you vote in the primaries? If not, today is National Voter Registration Day. Let your voice be heard. In two elections since 2000, our presidents may have been different if more people voted. You say my voice can’t be heard; look at your state and local elections, which generally have a larger impact on you than the presidential race. So many times they are too close to call during the 11:00 news and even the next day. Register today. Your voice matters. You matter. https://vote.gov

Our children will always be the change. #WakeUp
Speak up now before it’s too late. Who will be left to speak up for you? #Think #Speak #BeTheChange #EngageTheEnraged

I wanted to wait and see if Trump was going to try to unite our country, or would we the fruits of his divisiveness throughout … Continue reading What’s Next?
Taken today at the opening of the National Museum Of African American History And Culture (NMAAHC), we can see that true friendship can cross party lines. I hope that the friendship between First Lady Michelle Obama and former President George W. Bush can be used as an example in politics and life. Original image from … Continue reading More Love…Less Hate
This election season has been a page turner for a wannabe political aficionado like me. If you would have told me that Donald Trump would be the last candidate standing, with Ted Cruz still thinking about returning for the nomination, I would have laughed in your face. In fact, I would have already been cracking … Continue reading House of Cards: The Reality Show
Drops mic...Obama out. 🎤😎
Thoughts??? Did Wilmore go too far, or did he just tell it like it is?
So grateful for The Washington Post's live updates of the White House Correspondents Dinner. I missed it so I'll be one of those annoying people commenting about it on Monday.
