We take holiday for things that happened centuries ago and that’s fine. It’s an opportunity to remind my children of important times of history. Voting is one of the most important rights we have modern day. People should not have to struggle to vote. Getting off work should not be an issue. Getting out of school should not be an issue. Democracy Day would be a great holiday. It would show that we, America, really do care about Democracy and giving every equal opportunity to vote no matter their station in life. Your vote is your voice. I noticed that people keep saying we are not a democracy, we are a republic and this is true. But democracy is the system we function under and voting is apart of that system, hence, Democracy Day. A day to celebrate our system. I think that’s the idea behind the name.
