I cried, I clapped, I took photos of my TV. I sang along with Lady Gaga, JLo and Garth Brooks. I am hopeful.
I am a mom, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, I am a woman. And for the first time in history there is a woman, a woman of color holding the position of Vice President of the United States. It was a memorable day.
There is no question our country still has a lot of work to do. But I am hopeful our future will be more colorful, more diverse and more inclusive. Focused on science, empathy and compassion.
I am hopeful for my daughters, this new chapter shows them they can reach as high as they can dream and with enough work and determination they can get there.
I am hopeful.
