Regardless of how you voted, today history was made. As I watched the election results come in, I could not help be moved that our country had come a long way in it's relatively short life. It is not about the person....it was about that our country adopted the ideas of our founding fathers and my strong Christian faith, that all men were created equal. I thought of when I was in school and I asked my parents, "What were you doing when.....?". Our children will ask that question about today. I decided to write them a letter and answer that question. Hopefully one day they will read it and be able to feel exactly what it was like tonight as we awaited election results. I really feel that this crosses party lines. What a historic election. Women and African-Americans have both come so far. We should be proud to live in our country. President Abraham Lincoln and Susan B. Anthony, along with many others who have fought the good fight, would both be proud to see what they worked so hard for pay off in this election. God Bless America!
