Just like everyone does once in a while I decided to Google my own name. Up popped information on a fallen private in the army during Iraqi Freedom. We would be the same age, we have the same name, the same ‘not so popular’ religion, and I found out later, she was a close friend to one of my relatives. I think everyone can use a reminder that their vote counts, that they have a choice to remain silent or open their mouth, that EVERY loss hits close to home for someone… sometimes that anonymous someone isn’t so anonymous. And so I ordered a Memorial Bracelet to remind me of the sacrifices made in my name.
