My dad had a good visit. We didn't do anything really interesting, just spent time as a family. On Monday my dad and my daughter flew back to NJ. My daughter will be back on Dec. 11 and then start college in January.
It had been an interesting evening watching the presidential election and although I had huge disagreements with both sides, I woke up feeling pretty good. I was not on the side of voting for Barrack Obama, but his victory does say something special to me. Not only can anyone become president, but my son who is half Mexican can be told that "yes you can too." He used to ask me if he could be president and I would tell him of course, but in the back of my mind I thought no way. Only because it didn't seem possible that a half Hispanic kid, who definitely doesn't look white, could actually be voted into the White House, but now I can feel that yes this is possible. I cannot say I agree with many issues, and I cannot say that I voted for Obama, but I can say that him getting elected has made a way for other people who may not have had that way before.
