Image result for i'm with her

 

This was my daughter's first opportunity to vote in a presidential election. At 20 years old, she had an opportunity that I have been waiting 32 years for - she voted for a woman major party nominee with a real shot at winning the presidency.

 

I did not vote for Hillary Clinton because she is the lesser of two evils. I voted for her because I have admired her for three decades. She is a bad ass nasty woman who has spent her career trying to make life better for children. So have I.

I won't be back until this over. And if my country elects an authoritarian racist misogynist demagogue, it will take me a while to stop sobbing and leave the house again.
