For Pagans, Samhain (Halloween) is often considered our “new year”. It is a time of reflection and remembrance, and a time to look forward to what the new year might bring us. It seems fitting then that what follows Samhain is an election…an election that will decide the course of our country for the next four years.
Like many Americans, I am hopeful for a change to happen, specifically a change toward a kinder nation. In recent years I’ve watched in dismay as anger and fear has swept our country, racism and bigotry exploding out of the dark spaces where it has lain hidden for decades.
I am a person who believes that we are called upon to care for our fellow human beings, and that healthcare, food and housing should be a fundamental right.
I implore you to vote. Vote for a kinder world. Vote for candidates that will bring us forward, not backward.
I love you, Readers! Have a wonderful Wednesday.
