The Eve of Election Day

Independence is happiness.Susan B. Anthony

In 1848, the Seneca Falls Convention was the first women’s rights convention. It passed a resolution in favor of women’s suffrage. This idea was thought too extreme even by some of the convention organizers. Seventy two years later in 1920, the 19th amendment was passed giving women the right to vote in the United States. Ninety six years later, the United States is on the verge of another milestone for women’s rights with the possibility of the first female president. It’s the eve of election day. Go vote. Today The Vatican City is the only country in the world where women don’t have the right to vote. Only Cardinals are allowed to vote, and the election of a new Pope is the only item voted on. I’m not going to talk about morals, politics, religion or personal choices. I am urging you to vote. Over the past several centuries, millions of people have lost their lives fighting and defending freedom all over the world. If you live in the United States, please go vote.

Update on other wips:

  • Frank in Pairs: This morning, I had 28 of the 30 Frank rows completed before the next Pairs stripe.
  • Dewberry Dancer: I’m working on this one now. I’m attempting to reach row 20 of section two tonight.

Last month, I only managed to review two movies. Where did the month go? October’s theme was Hide Behind your Knitting Movies. I’m looking for suggestions for November’s theme. If you have an idea, leave your suggestions in the comments.

I think Gracie was trying to be scary in this photo. It’s just difficult when you’re that fluffy.
