How Will You Vote?

Working in a political headquarters taught me the importance of voting. Christian Science taught me how to approach voting with spiritual understanding.

Everyone is not exposed firsthand to politics as I was. Probably relatively few have known personally an individual who lost an election in a large metropolitan city by only six votes. My friend told me that the day after the election, while walking the short distance to his office, he encountered a total of eight men he knew— some close friends, others slight acquaintances. Each one stopped to talk, to offer condolences, to apologize for his laxness in not voting. Each had planned to vote for him. Each had been too busy. Apathy, in this instance, had taken its toll: a worthy public servant was probably deprived of serving.
