Today is an historic day! It is a beautiful thing to consider that as a nation we have gone from being a place where Presidents ‘owned’ slaves to a nation that has elected an African American President! And I am excited by the response from around the world to his election and the energy surrounding it. As someone who has spent close to five years living in South America and Europe, I have grown weary of the ‘Yankee Go Home’ signs and sentiments. It gives me hope that for the first time in a long time, our global neighbors are taking a new look at us as a nation.
I am looking forward to sitting back with my sons later today and watching this historic event!
