Well, I voted, but I did not have much desire to do so. I used to be so excited and happy to have the opportunity to vote, but that feeling is gone. I admit that I skipped a lot on the ballot, including Missouri’s Senate race. Each candidate only had one positive advertisement as the rest targeted the opponent and how awful they were. How can we as the people who vote feel good about putting either person in office when everything is so nasty? How am I supposed to teach my kids to work with those they do not agree with when our elected representatives refuse to work with those they oppose? It is disheartening at best. I voted anyway, but I can’t say I am happy about it.
