President Barack Obama started off the morning with a national call to action. The 44th president reminded people in his tweets that “voting is the cornerstone of our democracy.”  Obama also quoted Representative John Lewis (D-GA), now deceased, who called voting our “most precious right.” The representative should know, because he shed blood and nearly died for that right. And the former White House resident made voting real, regarding women’s rights, individual freedoms, and saving our planet.

Then, the former POTUS turned people on to an  I WILL VOTE site that gives Americans a place to commit:

‘Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy—and, as the late Congressman John Lewis reminded us, our most precious right. On National Voter Registration Day, take a few minutes to make sure you’re registered at http://iwillvote.com. Then make a plan to vote.’

The popular president linked the act of voting to women’s rights, not just their reproductive rights, but their autonomy over their bodies. Republicans have been scheming to steal women’s rights even down to contraception for decades. And that is what they would bring to the White House given the opportunity. Then too, the GOP cares nothing for the climate:

‘In a few weeks, we’ll get to decide who we want to be. Do we want to be a nation that protects women’s rights? A nation that allows every citizen to make their voice heard? A natin that takes action on climate change before it’s too late?’

After that, President Obama invited Americans to not only vote themselves but to encourage “family, friends, and neighbors to vote, too:”

‘These are just a few of the questions that will be answered at the ballot box—which is why it’s so important to make sure you’re registered to vote. After you’ve checked, make sure to ask your family, friends, and neighbors to do the same.’

Michelle Obama’s husband tucked into his tweets a little story about meeting the Queen of England. And he offered his sympathies to “Queen Elizabeth with Royal family and mourning her passing:”

‘Michelle and I were lucky enough to know Her Majesty The Queen. Back when we were just beginning to navigate life as President and First Lady, she welcomed us to the world stage with extraordinary generosity. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family and those mourning her passing.’

Action is in the air.
