I don’t care what your political affiliation is. It’s a proud day to be an American.
Those of you that have followed this site knows I don’t post political stuff. But today I’m making an exception.
Our new president was born to a mixed-race family with modest means and married a woman that was born to a family also with modest means. (His mother-in-law’s move to the White House is her first move ever.) Now he’s President of The United States.
As the father of mixed-race children, I know how they can be presented with special challenges. I like to tell my children that this is a country where a person of any race can do anything they want. Watching the inauguration today made feel that was more true than ever before.
Like I already said: I don’t care what your political affiliation is; you should stand up today and be proud today.
