"I feel like a man," said my 19 year old nephew after casting his ballot the other day.
He'd waited on line three times to vote, each time having to leave for class or some other obligation.
Finally he waited an hour and a half and did it. He voted on each initiative, and chose among 13 presidential candidates, then spoke to me cogently about his choices.
That little boy is now a man helping to shape this nation. I'm so proud of him.
