Tell Me Something Good – A Huge Moment in History
i sit and write this with tears still in my eyes, a smile on my face and a heart filled with hope. i am overcome with gratitude that i get to bring my daughter into this world with the first woman presidential nominee of a major political party. i truly am. history is in the midst of being made and i get to be a part of it.
when my parents told me that i could be whatever i wanted when i grew up, that meant ‘president’ technically could be on the table. however, i never considered that. there was no evidence that this could actually happen. i never saw myself represented so therefore i did not believe it. but no more! this has changed and now when we tell our daughter she can be whatever she wants to be – there is now evidence to back us up. no, hillary rodham clinton is not perfect and there are some actions of hers i don’t agree with but she has made me darn proud to be a woman in america.
this election is not one to be taken for granted. i tend to leave most political stuff alone on here but it’s becoming clearer how important it is, especially this term. perhaps that’s another post for another time but it’s important to vote and to vote for the person (in this case – a woman) that believes in and continues to work for social justice for everyone.
the ‘tell me something good’ of today is that a strong, dedicated, and experienced woman is now the democratic nominee in the united states of america! that fact makes me feel pretty darn good. the world can change (and has) and it is up to each one of us to take intelligent action in continuing to make things happen!
