I took this picture in Portland yesterday as I walked out of catering at the venue. What a beautiful reminder of why we do what we do and the blessing it is to live in America. This is not a political blog but with the election a week away I encourage everyone to vote. Don’t just vote but understand why you vote. We all want change in this and that and it starts with our voice. Use this Presidential election to jump start your politcal awareness on the local level. Most of us, including myself vote for the President but we miss most of the local elections. It all starts on the local level. The flag doesn’t just fly in Washington but in every town in America.
