I'm not quite yet ready to say goodbye to Twitter. It's been a part of my life since 2007, in some account or another. I've actively engaged with libarch Twitter since 2010 (although even in 2007, I was somewhat involved).

Why I Vote, Even Though I'm a Mennonite...

Mennonites don't vote. That's what I heard growing up. Not that I was raised Mennonite, mind, but even before I knew enough of the beliefs that I knew I wanted to be one, I knew this one fact about them. Of course, like any “fact” about Mennonites…it depends. But it's definitely a part of our history and our spiritual heritage. My husband says we've lost our way, but he still votes.
