The Better Than That Episode

Circling back to the Special Edition: The Shout Out Loud & Vote Episode, I’m taking this week to dive into the tone of our national social and political conversation. Midterm elections are coming to a conclusion, but nothing will be “over”. Regardless of the outcome, we need to stop pointing fingers and look at ourselves in the mirror. We’ll never see change if we believe that the state of the world is someone else’s fault.

This week, I’m putting out a call for civility, why change begins with a responsibility to ourselves and how questions are the key for understanding the other side.

Midterms are approaching and with the recent SCOTUS nomination, I’ve been wondering, why we sometimes vote against ourselves across the board. We often come to the voting booth with one name in mind for a specific position, and believe that we don’t have to be responsible for actually knowing what our public officials believe or would act on.

If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that we are more powerful than we believe, and our votes absolutely matter. We’re not just voting for right here and right now. We’re voting for the baby babes who haven’t even been thought of yet. So, show up. They’re counting on you.
