We Should All be Like My Sister

“Erin wants to embody her ideals, not just vote for them”

It is no secret that I think my siblings are the bees knees. But the wide range of reactions that I’ve seen to yesterday’s election (from wild, uncontained glee to clothes-rending despair), my sister’s simple Facebook status update was by far the best. And it carries so much weight because nobody I know tries harder than she does to act on her beliefs. And that’s saying something, because I know some amazing people on BOTH sides of the political spectrum.
