The only political discussion I remember as a child was when I was in the second grade and we voted Carter or Reagan within our school. Carter won. Fortune tellers we were not.

The next political talks I recall were for the Hancock Amendment in college. Those in favor had us believing they'd take away football AND the music department if we didn't get it passed.

I swear I married a Democrat. He says once he saw the take-home pay of his first real job, he hasn't looked back. I remember when the twins were 3 and Meiners was in a carseat, we visited the headquarters here in our fair town, and my husband taught the kids to chant: "4 more years" as we walked into the building. Today we took the kids to the Republican Picnic.

The highlights from the day included meeting PearlHeart (remember Nashville Stars?).

And taking a bite out of a little Midwestern Americana. The facts of the race this year are remarkable. And make me a little nauseated, actually. I'm praying for our country and its people - daily - but especially for the next 44 days. We face a monumental decision that can lead our country into one of two entirely different directions, depending upon the conclusion.

Be smart. Get informed.
