The right thing

Politics was mentioned in passing last night. Aunt Marie was just getting settled in her latest room (the fourth since she was admitted three weeks ago). “I probably won’t get to vote,” she sighed.

“I don’t think it is too late to get an absentee ballot,” I mentioned.

“She’ll look into it,” my mom promised.

And here I am, looking up her precinct number and writing out an envelope to the clerk. I printed the necessary form; she’ll just need to sign.

Aunt Marie’s political views are the polar opposite of mine.

Who am I to deny her the right to vote?
