No matter how today's voting plays out, it is a historical day. Tomorrow, we will either have our first African American president or our first female vice president. It is absolutely amazing to me that this is happening. Gracie and Luke are too young to know what is going on. However, I hope that someday, when they have free time to read back over all of these posts, they will come across today's entry and be able to relive the excitement of the day.
For the record, Gracie and Luke, Daddy and I both voted for Barack Obama for president. A small part of me wondered if putting Aunt Becca's boyfriend (Joe Biden) into office was such a great idea, but when we weighed the alternative, we decided that Barack Obama and Joe Biden were the better choice.
Today is also historical because of California's Prop 8. Prop 8 is a California Constitutional Amendment to say that marriage is defined as between a man and a woman. It would take away the right of same sex couples to marry under the law. While some will not agree with me, I voted no. Why? Because anytime someone wants to take away the rights of another, it is not a good thing. I cannot support any proposition that removes rights of anyone.
In the end, things will fall out how they were meant to be. History will be made. How exciting to have been a part of such an amazing day!
