I have been reading about the upcoming American election with some interest. So much so that I only recently realized we were having a local (Halifax, Canada) municipal election and voting at the polling station is on Saturday.
One of the things that elections usually centre on is change for the better. Citizens take responsibility by electing officials who will represent them to take action.
I believe in the power of the democratic process. But related to that is our own power to change our own world. Two songs that I enjoyed about taking self-responsibility are Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror and Nickelback’s When We Stand Together.
