This tale isn't so much about something the kids did or said, rather it's my way of documenting the history that was made this week sealing for them a world of change.
Cindy and I were texting today and gabbing all about the tears we shed over this rendition of Fight Song...
Before you read another word, watch the video, pause and reflect on the greatness of Lemon Breeland and Tami Taylor, and then wipe your eyes. Not because of it's catchy tune or A-list celebrities, not even because I think Hillary is the greatest, but because of what this really means.

Political views aside - this is amazing. Right now, we are part of an incredible history of progression. As a woman, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a momma to two beautifully strong, fierce girls - this giant step forward in gender equality is huge. I can look them in the face and say without a doubt, "You can truly be whatever you choose to be."
And that is incredible.
Regardless of who you choose to vote for at the polls, let yourself sit in this moment. Please see it for the gift it is to this country. We are moving forward. We are moving beyond. We are moving to a bright future. Together.
It takes all of us. Hand in hand. Seeking to learn and grow from our differences. Respecting our differences. And truly loving each other in spite of our differences.
Because although we have come so far, we still have a long way to go. But we can get there. We will get there and when we do, our children will thank us.
**This post in no way is meant to cause negative remarks or comments. This is merely my way of saying that I am excited that history was made by having a woman as a presidential candidate. If you are mean, I will love you anyway. Because Jesus told me to.**
