So this lady comes in to the pharmacy and asks for Vitamin C. We only have 500mg, so she proceeds to stare at us with such a concerned look in her eyes and asks
“What will I do if my doctor tells me I need to take 1000mg?”

I was just introduced to this incredible Twitter account
I didn’t vote in 2010 and that was a shame. My vote individually would not have mattered significantly, but I’m sure that many of my friends were just like me and ultimately apathetic when it came to non-presidential elections. They’re just House or Senate people. Who give a care? Thanks to four years of gridlock and complete stupidity with national politics, that has at least changed my singular mind. I plan to vote, and I encourage you to do the same. Why? Because of this article. No one believes that we can be a powerful voice. I know that to not be true. Let’s prove the old farts wrong like we did in 2008! This isn’t about getting the Democrats out to vote. This isn’t about getting the Republicans out to vote. This is about getting the young people out and moving and involved. We are listening to what’s happening not only in our country but also around the world, but we haven’t (yet) contributed significantly to our legislature. As simple as getting one in five of your friends to change their mind about voting this year can make a world of difference as far as student loans and the sustainability of social security are concerned. If we are able to even out 5% of the current establishment based on our votes, that’s a huge impact.

Millennials are not getting much love from politicians this year.
The big reason for that is low expectations for turnout among young voters.
Back in 2010, the last midterm election, fewer than a quarter of voters ages 18 to 29 showed up at the polls. This year, it’s looking even worse: 23 percent of voters under 30 are expected to vote. That’s according to Eva Guidarini of the Harvard Institute of Politics, which studies young voters.
For many years, young voters were not expected to really care about politics, much less get involved.

If you were on the moon during a lunar eclipse, you would be basking in the light from all the sunsets and sunrises on earth at that moment. (And that’s why blood moons are red!)
