Count Your Blessings - Day 10
At least 37.6% of the world’s population live under authoritarian regimes.
Give £1 if you did not use your vote in the last local or general election
DID NOT USE YOUR VOTE! Never! From as long as I can remember, my Dad dinned it into us that we must always vote, that people died to get us the vote, that voting was a privilege not a right, that even if we spoiled out ballot paper as a protest we must still get out here and do it. A cheap day, financially, but a sobering one, given how many people don't bother to play their part in the democratic processes we take for granted.
Today - one mild rant!
Total - £12.10, two prayers and some incredulity!
