You can ask any one in my parents generation where they were when Kennedy was shot they will tell exactly where they were and what they were doing. In my life I have had a few days where I feel like I have witnessed history. The Challenger disaster, Princess Diana's death, and of course 9/11. I didn't realize that Tuesday morning when I turned on the TV what I would be witnessing or just how greatly that morning would affect the world or my life.
Today I plan to spend the good majority of the day watching history being made. Whether or not I agree with his politics, today I am proud of my generation for electing a Black president. When I tried to explain to Bri yesterday why Daddy was home and why it was a holiday, it was amazing to think about how far we have come in such a short time. We still have so far to go, but with all the horrible thing that happen in the world, it gives me hope for my kids that they will like in a world were all are accepted anyone can be President. I remember watching other inaugurations and feeling very proud but today is even more special and I'm excited to watch history in the making.
