History Byte: Sister Suffragette!

Hey, guess what? Today isn't just any other run of the mill Thursday -- it's Women's Equality Day. That's right, 90 years ago in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. It states: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex." How 'bout them apples? I feel dorky saying this, but whatever you may think, say or feel about this country, we were founded upon this important statement: "all [persons] are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

In a day where a woman and a black man ran for the Presidency of the United States, it's hard to deny that the US is living up to its word. So, for all of you reading this who are over 18, don't ever forget to vote!

PS-The subject line is an ode to the song from Mary Poppins! Remember this?
