Having spent time living abroad in a country under a dictatorship, I am truly thrilled to cast my vote. It is a privilege not everyone, much less a lot of women around the world, can claim to have. It was 144 years after the founding of this country that the 19th amendment to the constitution provided my kind access to the voting booth! This equal access was written on the bones of the suffragettes and should not be taken for granted.

So why are Americans so anxious? Our anxiety levels are off the charts. I see it everyday with my students and their parents. The media feeds it. Everyone seems to be on some sort of medication.

Almost a thousand lives have been lost in Haiti. God please bless that island sometime soon. Their homes and schools are blown away, bridges toppled, and crops destroyed by a massive barrelling hurricane and then... a day or two later the same Hurricane, Matthew, skates along the coastline of the USA, where we wait in fear of losing our electricity, running out of water and fighting over fuel, without daring to enter our land space. It just brushed past us. The worst damage was caused by storm surges coinciding with the high tides. How come we are the lucky ones, again?
