Remembrance for election day

When I cast my ballot tomorrow, this is moment I’ll be thinking of.

I’ll remember the tremendous pride and solidarity I felt with my fellow citizens in the Capitol rotunda that Saturday in February, 2011. We were outraged by the behavior of Governor Walker and his allies. We couldn’t believe what they were doing to our state. We listened to people tell their stories and talked about how we were going to fight back. That eventually we were going to make a difference, and our voices would be heard.

Tomorrow is that day. Yes, when I mark my ballot for my beloved Wisconsin, this is the scene I’ll be remembering.
