It was 2016 and my daughter Isabelle’s first time voting. We thought we were living history and electing the first woman president. We took selfies and planned a late-night celebration with apple pie and bubbly.
We all know the rest of that story.
Four years later, I am eager to celebrate on Inauguration Day 2021, but I am less excited about voting than at any other time in my life. As a super voter, it has been disheartening to realize how little satisfaction I now get from voting.
