Today, Election Day, is a high anxiety day for me. I’ve been up for 6 hours already (not planned!) and have avoided email and the internet in general thus far. Instead I decided to learn a new skill – creating animated gifs!
So I’ve shared my first go at an Adobe Animate gif.
Today is the last day to vote in the US. If you haven’t done so yet – check out iwillvote.comto find out how you can.
Yes, voting does matter. Right now it especially matters for the safety of so many – people of color, LGBTQ+, immigrants, refugees, any person at high risk for COVID, etc.
That could possibly be your family member, friend, neighbor, colleague, client or one of theirs.
Here is a much better analogy than I would come up with for why voting matters by Ash Ambirge.
Sometimes I LOVE social media – when it works for the good and amplifies voices that need heard. I happened across a video from Vernée Smith on a Facebook group and I believe her voice needs heard. Vernée so succinctly explains cognitive dissonance and her video with all its analogies was begging to be illustrated.
I love the idea of a journey from one truth to another. Vernée provides an explanation on the tools needed as we go on that journey.
