The Morning After

Since my last post on polls a few days…weeks…ok,  months ago, I became really intrigued and engaged in this year’s presidential election. Big surprise, right! I have been fascinated by the semantics, the coverage, the demographics, the issues and the two men running for our nation’s highest office.  Last night was a late one at my house.

As a citizen, I have to admit that I’m appalled at the spending, the rhetoric, the lack of respect for differences and the increased role of government in our American experiment.  As a mother, I am concerned about the lessons we are inadvertently teaching our children…not just in tone and civility, but in economics, ethics and leadership.

However, my greatest challenge today is to create a positive environment for my children so they keep believing in America….because last night, their guy lost and losing at any age is never fun.

One thought on “The Morning After

  1. As I always tell my girls, there will be another election in 4 years. And the way it goes, it is very likely that a person from the opposite party will win. So, whether you are happy with the current president’s party or not, it will likly change in the near future!
