On Tuesday I witnessed a historical moment in US history. I cannot express in words the emotion I felt other than to say I was deeply moved. I have hope that my children may grow up in a more kinder, loving, and accepting nation free from bigotry and prejudices.
I have hope.
On a funny note....
The night before, I asked Ben if he knew what was going to happen the next day. His eyes got big and sparkly and asked "what is it?". I told him the we will get a new President tomorrow. He broke out into a huge grin and said "For me? I get a new toy?". His little 4 year old brain heard present, not president.
Then I asked Ben if he knew what the President does (they had been learning about him in school) and he said "Yes, he protects us". As I was agreeing with him, he went on to say "from the monsters and aliens in their spaceship flying around the Earth!". Well, I guess technically speaking that would be part of the President's job requirements if the need should arise.
