American Flatbread & Flatbread Kitchen
Friday and Saturday, October 1 & 2, 2004
Tonight’s menu and baking are dedicated to:
Welcome to all of you and thank you for being here tonight.
In the thirteen years that I have worked for American Flatbread I have probably only written two or three dedications. Sharing my thoughts or feelings on paper is not my area of expertise although anyone who works here will tell you I have plenty to say!
Anyway, for a number of reasons today I found myself inspired to sit down and share a few words with you on that increasingly popular topic…voting. I will say that similar to my inhibitions toward writing is my distaste for mixing politics with any of life’s pleasures, especially food, so I will try to be brief.
To all of those who think that their vote does not count—I say it does! Even if the person you vote for does not win the election someone will see the numbers and get a message. When you are talking about the sheer volume of votes that are cast in elections it is not the 1 or 2 that count, that is true, it is the collective number that speaks. You cannot add to that larger voice if you do not exercise your one small, but meaningful vote. Please do not throw away the right that so many fought so hard to get for you!
Thanks for reading and now…enjoy this beautiful evening and your meal.
