History Made





Wow, what a night! Walls were torn down, barriers erased, and fears disappeared as the American people cast their vote. Turnout was the highest in 100 years. 100 YEARS!Young people stepped up like never before. My 11 year old son watched the entire evening unfold and I'm quite certain that would not have happened under any other circumstances. People of all ages voted for the very first time because they knew their voice mattered. For me, the most important issue was that apathy was replaced by hope. For the first time in a long while, I felt a sense of optimism and pride that we so desperately need right now. When 90% of the population feel like the country is heading in the wrong direction, we need a new direction. Regardless of your political affiliation, this was a night that America made history and for that I am so proud.
