Dear Friends -
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men 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.” – Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. Thus began our American democracy, which gives each one of us the right to choose our public officials. Voting is one of the most important rights and responsibilities that we have as American citizens. It is a right that many had to give their lives for. It is right that many people around the world are deprived of. Count your blessings and exercise one of the most cherished duties of being a citizen of these United States of America, our home.
At a time when you have to ban political talk from dinner with the in-laws, when yelling and interrupting make for good TV, when lying and deception make for effective campaigning and when websites are taken over by angry, hateful trolls, how can we even talk about important public issues? And if we can't do that, how can we progress as a democratic society and community?
The Islamic Center of Northeast Florida is sponsoring a picnic in correlation of UDiON Foundation on Saturday, November 3, 2012. The picnic is our Get Out The Vote (GOTV) effort.
During the picnic ICNEF will be busing voters to early voting locations. This will make it easy to vote. Come out enjoy the picnic, enjoy the company and then go out and fulfill your duty.
