The Unexpected Gift of Voting  
True story: voting saved my life. In 2008 I was extremely suicidal but I knew I had to stay alive long enough to vote against Prop 8 and for Obama. I had tried to call some therapists but either they didn't call back or didn't have room in their practice. Not long before the election a great therapist called me; he suddenly had an opening. If I hadn't held out long enough to vote, I wouldn't have been there to get his call and receive his excellent help. Unexpected gifts come to those who vote.

I'm glad, I would've hated to have missed out on meeting you.
