Editor, the Advocate:
I would like to thank Mr. Omar Rashid for taking the time to remind our citizens what a precious gift we have in the ability to vote without fear of retaliation.
Too often, this is something that is taken for granted by too many; sadly, this is a fact that is brought home by a gentleman who has lived in a country where his family risked everything, including loss of life, in order to exercise this precious gift. I only hope that folks will pay attention and get out there and have a say in the future of our own world.
Thank you, Mr. Rashid.
Jodi Schaefer, Victoria
