With Heidi on night float this month, we were able to go together as a family to the polls in the morning and vote. One benefit of living in our neighborhood is that the clubhouse (just down the way from our house) is a polling place and there were absolutely no lines.
The Bibb County GA ballot was full of single candidate races where you had one person to vote for or the write-in option. We would pick the write-in option and let Trey pick the letters to write. Talk about the media having an influence on you! Trey kept voting for “O” and “7″, the letter & number of the day on Sesame Street. Never knew that show had a political agenda!
Whether you voted Republican or Democratic (or wrote in Nader) you can be proud that our nation is moving closer and closer to healing its 200+ year-old wound of racism and its 60 year-old scab. I’m excited that for the next 4 or 8 years Trey will be able to see an African American lead our nation and he will grow up without the assumption that one’s skin color decides what they can or can’t do.
