Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” –Samuel Adams, from The Writings of Samuel Adams.

We’ve come again to that seminal moment which occurs each and every year in this great country of ours, from the smallest of localities to national contests: Election Day. This is the day so many Americans have fought and died for, both on our soil and over the waters in lands far out of reach.

As many, many authors past and present have argued (far more eloquently than I), we as U.S. citizens at the very least owe it to the memory of those who gave their lives for America to exercise our right to vote.

[And what better way to celebrate this right than using one of the greatest movie quotes of all time, taken from the film Network.]

So no matter your political affiliation, go out there and vote today. It’s a right we as Americans should truly cherish.
