It is still so amazing to me that this is our new First Family.
Forty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. was killed for being a black man who preached equality and today an African American man is being sworn in as our President. I wish Andrew were a little older so he could at least have some memory of this day. I have tried to impress on my students how important today is and that they are witnessing history but I know they are too young to grasp the magnitude of this change.
If I am able to adopt from Ethiopia, my son's citizenship letter will be signed by the first African American President of the United States. It makes me smile just thinking about it.
