At 6:30am, I received a text message from my youngest step-daughter, Katy.

Katy is the sort of kid that will send me a text message to say “Happy I’m-Coming-To-Visit-You Day!“.

She celebrates days and moments, finding pleasure in the little things and then doing her best to pass that pleasure on, even if with just a text message.

The message from Katy this morning said, quite simply: “Happy New President Day!”

I thanked her, and wished her the same. Her next message:

“I’m so proud that I voted and will forever be a part of history!”

I told her that we were proud of her, too. Not just for voting, but for WANTING to make a difference. And I told her:

“This is the world you will inherit so you might as well start changing it now!”

I’ve read messages from people who voted not in favor of what they want right now, but in favor of what they want for their kids and grandkids.

I’m proud this is my country. I’m proud of my kids, and the differences they are making.

I’m proud to call Barack Obama my new president.
