Veteran Pierry Goin is a Haitian American and currently resides in Miami-Dade County. He is a graduate of the Airforce Academy and served our country across the globe, including serving in Afghanistan.
When I hear that thousands of persons who can’t vote in Florida are veterans I feel personally connected to them. They are brothers and sisters who have fought, defended, served, and supported our Constitution and our rights. It hurts to think about it.
It affects me personally because I can’t imagine if I made a mistake and paid my dues that I would lose that privilege and ability to vote. I’m still a citizen and so are they. Our ability to vote is our ability to speak in a democratic society.
