Equality

I vividly remember my first time voting. I was a senior in high school, and I went on my lunch break to cast my ballot. When I got back to school, the first person I saw in the hall was the principal. I remember being struck by the fact that I just participated in a process where my voice counted as much as his. That was invigorating. I just participated in a process where I was completely equal with community leaders, with my parents, with people of all professions and backgrounds, and it made me excited to do it again in the next election.
