A Turning Point Election

I am the daughter of a police officer.

From the time I was old enough to understand the simplest definition of what an election was, I have watched TV on each election night with my colored pencils and map — ready to fill in each state red or blue. I have always known that it was an important day, but I did not know the full extent to which it mattered to the rights of every American until 2020.

As a high school student having to adjust to the “new normal” of COVID-19, this year has proven to be one of the most stressful in my life thus far. What has stood out to me most is how divided our country has become. That hits especially close to home because I am the daughter of a police officer.

I have been judged for publicly speaking about how blessed I am to have a father who serves and protects my city and everyone around me. I have been judged by people who claim that they are “tolerant” — unless you are a conservative who loves our country and the people who protect it. Right?

The events occurring across our nation prove to all of us that there are two paths we can take.

I’m still too young to vote, but that doesn’t mean my voice won’t be heard this year. I choose to stand for the America that defends ALL of its citizens, including those who honorably protect and serve others. I choose to stand for those whose businesses and careers have been destroyed. I choose to stand for those who are judged for not agreeing with “mainstream” ideas promoted by the media and on social media. I choose to stand for those who cannot fight for themselves.
