A profound thing happened in the United States last night.
I am proud to have been a part of it.
I am proud that my 6 year old took pride in casting her vote at school yesterday and that the moment she woke up this morning she called "Mama? Did anyone win yet?".
I was proud to tell her that even though she doesn't realize it now, she will remember when she is an old lady, that she was eating popcorn and watching the returns with me, and that vote she cast at school. That she will tell people that she remembers.
It is an amazing and wondrous day in the history of this country.
The winner of The Heretic's Daughter is Chris. Congratulations!
