Who says people don't care about politics?
Super Tuesday events across Alaska, including the central Kenai Peninsula, show people care deeply about the future and want to have a hand in writing history. They don't necessarily agree on how that history should be written or who should be the next president of the United States, for example, but they do agree that their voice can make a difference.
The number of people participating in the Republican preferential polls and Democratic caucuses held Tuesday is nothing if not refreshing. And amazing. And exciting.
Freezing temperatures certainly did not chill anyone's enthusiasm for what was happening.
Peninsula residents and all other Alaskans who participated in the Super Tuesday events should congratulate themselves on making such a grand effort to have a say in the presidential race.
It's not over, yet, though.
It's a long campaign trail to November. Let's hope Alaskans and the rest of the country continue to stay engaged in the process and interested in the candidates.
