BY KENNY BELFORD
Not voting, even knowing a negative outcome in advance, never ever crossed my mind.
I cast my vote for people that have no malice in their hearts, that harbor no desire to cause harm to people that can’t defend against it.
I voted, knowing my vote might at least have a distant, remote possibility of informing the victors that not everyone is as jaded, selfish, narrow minded and regressive as they.
I voted because I can’t imagine how I could ever encounter those that will be harmed and not feel an overwhelming sense of guilt.
I voted alright. I did it with a sense of pride, that even in the face of certain defeat I know I’m right.
