I went to my local polling location this morning, before work. Even though I voted for Obama four years ago, this time, my vote was different.

I voted for my baby. I voted for his hopes, his dreams, his freedom. I voted that his differences (whatever they may be) will be celebrated, not shamed. I voted for his health. I voted for his reproductive rights as much as I voted for my own. I voted for his ability to receive a quality education regardless of where we live or how much money we may have. I voted for his safety. I voted for his environment.

I voted for his future.

Beautiful. :) And likewise. For yours and mine! And ALL THE CHILDREN!

Also, because I'm trying really hard not to tear up at my desk:

Love this. I voted for all this, too. For your baby, for my future babies, for our futures.

Love this. I voted for my nieces, so that the rights of their bodies will be their's and their's alone! I voted for my sister and my friends who are in wonderful committed relationships yet are denied the same rights that Jeff and I have. I voted for my nephew, who is willing to die for our country, that he never has to fight a ridiculous war based on lies. I voted for the 47%. I voted for me.

This is the best thing pretty much ever. I hope Obama see this gif.
