Today marks the day that any dreams or aspirations that I may have for my daughter, became more real-actually possible. Any obstacles she may face, as she assuredly will, will not be due to the door being slammed shut and locked in her face. The "door"was kicked down and kicked down so hard the house fell apart. Now we get the privilege to rebuild it into a fine mansion. A home in which we all can fit.
Today being American means walking with your head a bit higher.
Thank you Barack Obama for my making my daughter's life a bit easier and mine a bit better! My gratitude is unconditional and endless.
