Rock the Vote

I voted yesterday and was VERY happy to see the outcome of the election. I went to bed feeling hopeful for the America that my daughter will be raised in- something I have not felt in recent years. One thing is for sure, it will be a lot different then the White America I was raised in!

As a public educator, I am also anxious to see how and what sanctions change in the education realm and what the impact will be: I have yet to "work" for a Democratic President.. and I am hopeful that my job will become less about test scores and more about helping children grow as individuals as well as get a good education.

I am not a very political person and avoid social debates at all cost.. it just isn't that conducive to me to have to defend my position or get all fired up over politics, and I am respectful and so thankful that we live in a country that allows people to hold their own beliefs and viewpoints. My desire for the coming years is to see a better economy and country... one that I can be proud to call my home.

I had a different vote but either way I would love to see our country thrive and I pray he can do that! It was so cool getting to experience all this with my son because he got to learn history in the making.

I don't want him to raise anyones taxes...I don't think it's fair. I don't want yours or mine or my dads for that matter to be raised, we pay enough! I think we can all agree on that. No matter who won, I am sure there are exciting adventures ahead with a new area.
