In the past week I've seen Offspring #1 in a play (dang, she's good!), heard Offspring #2's trumpet in a symphony concert and a jazz concert (dang, he's good too!), and helped Offspring #1 move into a different apartment. Yep, it's been busy.
I missed Hillary's speech, but did read the text online. Here's my favorite part:
To those who are disappointed that we couldn't go all of the way, especially the young people who put so much into this campaign, it would break my heart if, in falling short of my goal, I in any way discouraged any of you from pursuing yours.
Always aim high, work hard and care deeply about what you believe in. And, when you stumble, keep faith. And, when you're knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can't or shouldn't go on. ...
Although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it -- and the light is shining through like never before, filling us all with the hope and the sure knowledge that the path will be a little easier next time.
Obviously she came up short (and yes I know not everyone is a fan of Hillary's), but still I'm proud of what she accomplished.
