The presidential election of 2008 was a historic event by anyone’s standard. We voted in our accustomed place, a local church.
We arrived around 8:00 AM, and we were #52 and #53 to vote. Pennsylvania has been a blue state the last 5 elections; but until this year our county was red.
This year, we helped to turn the county blue. A hopeful spirit pervades the area, and our country. May our hope prove well founded, and may our country move forward, bringing all of us closer together rather than dividing us more deeply.
