This morning – I used my brand-new, shiny “vote”…
…and got my first (and last) TATOO!
I know, I know…I had already won my little “blog battle“.
But, today was “special“…it is not every day that you get to exercise your most fundamental democratic right as a new citizen…in a country you love and care for deeply.
And…to get to do that on the same day that your one-and-only big, little girl gets to cast her very first vote…is just soooooo cool!
That is the the truth…
…and you can take that to the ballot box!
I also know that the part of town I live in (here in big, bad İstanbul) means that my vote won’t have too much of an “impact” – BUT every vote matters…and today…each of those votes matter more than ever.
Yes, today was special, very special…indeed!
However, we also have to remember that perhaps TOMORROW is even more important:
My big, little girl and I…still… “BELIEVE” !
