Politics have become more and more divisive over the past couple decades with folks holding steadfast to their beliefs as if they had money riding on a game. In the midst of this, we’ve withdrawn our values, hearts, and sometimes our minds from the political process, deciding that winning matters more than the impact our choice will make. But voting is our voice. Silence speaks for no one. Can we be mindful enough in this next election to vote our hearts, minds, and values?
In October celebrate: International Day of Nonviolence (October 2), Indigenous People’s Day (October 8), National Coming Out Day (October 11), Halloween/Samhain (October 31).
