The Civil Sacrament

All around the world, there are places where to go to vote is to literally take your life in your hands.

Imagine what they must think of those of us who, out of indifference or laziness, can’t be bothered to cast a ballot in perfect safety.

Voting is our civil sacrament, the polling place is the cathedral of civilization, and election day is our social holy day of obligation.

Go out tomorrow and partake of it.
