Crazy That The Government Would Encourage Different Languages

Happy election day.

I voted… and got a little “I Voted!” sticker…

… written in three different languages.

I know I’ve written about this before… but need to do so again:

I don’t have issues with diversity, race, creed, color, sexual orientation, musical preferences, favorite ice cream, whatever.

But I do have an issue with communication… because the only thing that makes a community — unites a community — is the ability to communicate.

We can’t do that if we all speak different languages.

Or, worse, if our government encourages multiple languages… like balloting in different languages… like teaching in different languages… like something as simple as an “I Voted!” sticker.

My father, aunt, and grandparents came here from Greece and made it a priority to learn the language of their new country.

You’d think, of anyone, the government would understand the value of that.
