During the glorious Inauguration this AM:
M: Mama, that's Barack!
Me: Yes baby. Today's the day. He's finally our president.
M: Why are you crying?
Me: Because today is a great day. Today is the first time a man who isn't white is President.
M: All the other Presidents were white?
M: Well that's just silly.
Me: Yes baby. It is. And that's why I'm crying. Because it's been so silly for so long and now anything is possible. It's possible because of him and because of everyone who has come before.
M: Like maybe I can be President one day.
Me: Yes baby. Yes you can.
