Attention to detail is an attribute that all of us can benefit from now and then (it is the norm for some individuals). This year (2014), is an election year, predominately known amongst politicians and political junkies as the “mid-term elections” (while voters sleep, ambiguous changes are sometimes manifested). Come alive voters! Check out your County Supervisor of Elections’ website to arm against a possible onslaught of candidates and issues that do not reflect the views and needs of people in a democracy. This is not a presidential election year, but governors, members of congress, senators and representatives at district, state and federal levels; we are not electing the head (symbolic of the president) but we are electing the body---the hands, feet, heart and soul of our country at all levels. What can a head do without a functioning body? Then how can the body be led without a head thinking in harmony with the body? Arise registered voters, arise and vote early---then reach out and get others to join in. Show interest, after all, this is about the United States of America and the votes in St. Lucie County count.!
