Today is election day in the United States, a time when our nation’s citizens perform the ultimate civic duty afforded one in a democratic society, the informed act of voting. So it was while walking beneath this American Flag above Church Circle and Main Street this morning that I began to think about a solo mid 18th century drummer beating out a cadence on their drum at this exact spot hundreds of years ago.

Those drummer’s of the day did so in order to communicate public information to the residents of Annapolis, in other words everyone come forward and listen to the announcement. Actually there was a brief moment earlier when I thought that I heard the faint rhythmic beat of a drum announcing that today is election day and that one should make haste so as to get to the polls.

Please make sure that you also get to the polls today so as to cast your vote,

Glenn
