A moment in time

For the first time, my home contains three voting cards, for me and the two adults my children have become. It's an exciting moment, made more so because I have no idea how they will vote next month. That's as it should be.

Both of them are taking an interest in the politics of our town and our country, which is all I can ask. They're my offspring, not my clones. I know they are intelligent and aware of their community and I hope they will use all that when they mark their cross.
