my hero

Gail, the friend that left us last weekend, completed one final heroic act before she died.

She was being rushed to the hospital – a visit from which she would not return. She knew this was the end; knew that she was down to hours, maybe days, left of her life.

On her way out of her driveway for the very last time, she insisted on checking the mail and lo and behold, there was her ballot.

And as her final statement to her friends and loved ones and the country at large…

She voted.

Now that’s patriotism.
