Historic Day

No matter what your political beliefs, today is an historic day. Two of the major candidates are a woman and a black man. One of them is going to be in the race for president. Think about that! This never could have happened back when I was a child, and now I can watch the Super Tuesday results with my children and know that a new era is finally beginning. I am so proud that this day finally, finally came for us.

I agree that it is amazing. I'm happy that we found a way to vote in the primary by voting for delegates Abroad. :)

We went to a rally two years ago that Obama spoke at and I remember picking up my youngest and told him to listen closely because Obama was going places. I'm sure that my little one doesn't remember.

I woke up early and got to the polls around 12:30 so I could vote before class. I had ended up adding an extra hour I didn't need in, but hey, longer lunch in a nice sit down restaurant at least. I try and vote every single time. This November will my third election, which is kinda awesome considering I'm only 26. I think I've missed one primary and that was it. I make it to the state ones, too.

My family has a saying: you can't complain if you didn't add in your voice.
