Never Forget...

...what this woman and her colleagues went through, laying down life and liberty for the sake of enfranchisement. The right to vote, folks, ain't automatic even today in many parts of the world. But here we have it and it is usually, as far as we can tell, done relatively fairly and honestly. So don't throw away your rights, and don't take them for granted. They're hard won and - as with all rights - it's easier to get rid of them than to get them back. It's your duty to vote, so get out there tomorrow and ****well do it.
