Incredible day for my daughter and our Country!

flagTomorrow is Inauguration Day.  As a nation, we look forward to this day for many special reasons.  For me, it is the day our new President, Barack Obama, takes office, our nation comes together in celebration, and my seven year old daughter is able to watch and remember this grand event.  She has been talking about it for weeks now as her teacher and class have discussed the upcoming day.  And with today's holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King almost over, I smile as I remember her interest and comments at the dinner table.  She commented on the unfairness the African-Americans experienced and spoke of how Dr King struggled to make our nation a better place.  She watched the news eagerly and listened to the news anchor list the schedule for tomorrows special day and she earnestly spoke of how proud President-elect Obama's daughters must be of their dad.  And I just smiled....I am so proud of my daughter and I am so proud of my country.  I can't wait for tomorrow!

Thats incredible Olga. I really think it is great how schools are getting children involved at younger ages. They need to know the challenges and the struggles, as well as the smiles and cheers, that are nation has seen and they need to be apart of it. Its a learning experience and a great memory for them to remember.

Terri, Isn't it great?  I can't wait to find out what her thoughts were after watching the inauguration this morning.  It was incredible!

 

Diane, I hope she did as well.  She was at school when the inauguration took place.  I wish I could have been there with her...can't wait to talk to her.
