    At an event in Heritage Square, I had the good fortune of encountering a young Hispanic man, who was very enthusiastic about registering to vote. After assisting him in filling out his registration I learned that just the prior day he had been sworn in as a US Citizen and was overexcited to participate in our electoral system. I was honored!
