You Gonna Vote, Brother?

There’s a church about a block down from my apartment in Seattle that I pass on the way to class every day. Usually in the afternoon there will be a pair of african-american older males sitting right outside passing the time. They aren’t panhandling or anything… I suspect they live there and just are taking the world in.

Last week I was walking by when one turned at me and we had this converstation.

“Hey Brother, you going to vote?”

“You know it”

“Good man”

Not sure why this stuck with me, but it did.
