This blog is not a political blog but I think this is an opportunity to stop and think about how far we have come and where we have yet to go.

What a momentous occasion – the United States, after a long history of slavery, Jim Crow, Separate but (un)Equal segregation laws, the civil rights fight in the 1960’s, deeply entrenched racism – elected it’s first African American President.  Now I can only wait to enjoy watching a woman taking that place and hear the shattering of that glass ceiling.
