‘People Died So I Could Vote’

People Died So I Could Vote” was a piece in TIME written in 2014 by Jocelyn Y. Stewart.

Stewart wrote: “To be American is to appreciate and acknowledge those who died so we could vote, who faced bombs and beatings, and lost farms-and voted anyway. They are owed a debt, payable in the currency of participation in the democratic process.”

Those sacrifices were for all of us. For every vote cast, we say that those struggles were not in vain.
