It’s Election Day.


Will You Come and Stand With Me

An Election Day shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered–
We voters, we happy voters, we band of brothers;
For he today that stands with me
Shall be my brother . . .
And those who remain this day a-bed
Shall think themselves the worst they were not here,
And hold their freedoms cheap who did not rise
And stand with me in St. Louis on Election Day.
(Apologies to Will Shakespeare and Henry V.)

Former Senator Jean Carnahan
