Tuesday is April 8,an important date in my life because, 55 years ago, our first child was born in an Army hospital in Wurzburg, Germany. She was a whopping 9 plus pounds and had a full head of black hair, and we named her Terri.Knowing nothing about babies and having no doting grandparents around, we played it by ear with the help of Dr. Spock's book. In addition to milk, we fed her cereal and fruit at a week, and she slept through the night from the beginning. When we got in the car to go camping on the weekends, she would lie happily in my lap smiling and cooing. We didn't know how lucky we were she was a real winner.When she was 4 months old, Terri and I and several other wives with new babies left on a Holland America ocean liner to come home to America. Our husbands came home later on a troop ship. I don't remember knowing anyone who flew in those days. It was a different world.After a wonderful seven day adventure crossing the Atlantic Ocean, we arrived in New York Harbor on a Sunday evening.

Pledging allegiance to the flag and singing the Star Spangled Banner was a part of life. It was then I realized the significance of what it is to be an American and live in a democracy, and later that year, I got to vote for the first time, which brings me to the point of this column.Tuesday is Election Day. After weeks of reading and hearing about the candidates for mayor, City Council and school board, you have the opportunity to vote. As you read this, I can hear some of you saying, "Come on, now don't preach to me. I'm not political, my vote doesn't matter plus I don't know enough about the candidates. And I am fed up with Converse Dainty Low Trainers all politicians."Do you belong to a church or other kind of organization? Are you in a family? Do you work with other people? If you answered yes to any of the above, you are political, whether you know it or not.As to your vote making a difference, remember the past national elections when we saw the results coming down to the very last votes counted in the last states? Not knowing enough about the candidates is not a good excuse, either. There have been countless opportunities to learn about their views and ideas for Sioux Falls in the Converse Shoes Uk Store

newspaper, on the radio and TV, in forums and talking to the candidates in person.If we are serious about what it means to live in a democracy, voting needs to be at the top of our list of privileges and obligations.
