The day finally arrived, votes were cast, and Obama is our new President Elect. No matter how you voted or feel about the outcome, history was made yesterday. LP got to be part of that historical event when she accompanied me and LP Dad to the polls yesterday. I tried to bring voting down to a 3 year old's level to explain what was going on and why it was important. I know she didn't understand everything, but she came with me into the booth and helped me to cast my vote.
I am extremely disappointed that Americans in 3 states let fear and intolerance legalize discrimination by taking away the rights of gays and lesbians. I sincerely hope that by the time LP is old enough to understand what is happening, this legalized discrimination will be overturned.
