Big Night

Obviously, Maisie will not remember this evening, nor will she remember the inauguration when we take her in January... but she will also never remember a time or a country where a black president seems like an impossibility.  This makes me both jubilant and grateful.  Our household feels a profound sense of relief and hope tonight.

I love that thought -- that our children won't remember a time when a black president seemed impossible. It's incredible ... my dad remembers the day when he got in trouble for drinking out of the "colored" water fountain. I'm glad new days are ahead. -Ali
