…while watching Kamala Harris accept the VP elect position.
I was excited when the Biden/Harris ticket won! I was at work when I got the news so I couldn’t fully focus on it. I had to run some errands after work but when I got home I turned on the news to watch the victory speech. After listening to Harris for about a minute I started to cry. I was so moved by seeing a woman become the Vice President. We are always told we can do anything as Americans, people, and women – but as we learned 4 years ago that isn’t really true…even if you are far ore qualified for a position. She said ‘I am the first woman in this position but I wont be the last’ and i just lost it. Seeing that strong woman in a leadership position just got me. I thought I might not ever see it. I thought of all the women who fought so hard and still fight so hard to pave that path. It is AMAZING and she is amazing.
Biden then addressed the nation with a wonderful speech about unity and working for the country – not just those who voted for him. That’s a leader.
Of course Marty and I are excited about the first rescue dog being in the White House too!
The work is just starting though – so much to do. Lets get started!
