Dreams For Our Daughters

I made this little photoshop montage a few months ago. It features photographic elements, the image of Ruby Bridges from the Norman Rockwell painting, "The Problem We All Live With" and with Malia Obama's beautiful face.

I held onto it as a bit of a talisman, and now it will be happening. Perhaps not exactly like this, but it's how I, as a woman who was a little girl in the 60's witnessing a different history, likes to think of it.

Maybe Malia should wear a coat on Tuesday, though...

Oh, that's wonderful! It makes me smile too. :)
But, yeah... a coat is definitely in order right now. BRRR!

I get a little teary every time I think of it. I'm sure Tuesday I'll have tears streaming down my face as I watch the Inauguration. But still, selfishly, I'm really going to miss having him as my senator - he was the best - very responsive. I belong to several liberal email lists that send a lot of emails in my name & have received a response to each one - detailed well thought out replies explaing his position & why he hlds it.

This is very sweet. Every time I think of the Obamas moving into the White House I smile!

I love it!
I watched Obama give his speech at the 9th Street Station this morning before he and his family started off on their train trip to Washington. I had tears in my eyes and a big smile on my face. His words make me feel so optimistic about the future and focus of our country. I pray that he can lead us to become one nation again all working together.

I, too, grew up during the 60s and am so proud of how far we, as a country, have come. We still have further to go, but this is a GREAT start! Yes, Malia should wear a coat tomorrow.
