Why Should I Care?

Why Should I Care?

Written by Marguerite Nowak

 Processing the Political

My friend Caitlin votes. She signs petitions and tries to stay active. She does not, however, believe her voice matters. “The people I vote for,” she tells me, “Never get elected anyway". Caitlin is 24. She lives in San Francisco and is working on her MA in counseling. She is an intelligent, caring person and yet, she doesn’t believe she can affect change.
