Reflectin'...

Where were you on the biggest day in American History?

Can you remember where you were when Kennedy was assignated? I wasn't born.
I vaguely remember when his brother was shot.
I was a Sophmore when an attempt on Reagen took place.
I was a junior in high school when John Lennon was killed.
I remember watchin' the Space Shuttle exploded....the girls were young and I was a stay at home mom.
I was at the dentist office when the Murrah buildin' was bombed in OKC. Roy was in OKC assistin' with security at the bombin' site.
I was workin' at the AnimalClinic on September 11th 2001. I didn't believe the man that told me...people always try to pull the wool over the BlondeChick. Roy went home and confirmed it.


On the most profound day in American History of my time that didn't have one thing to do with death and destruction, while the rest of the America celebrated, I was havin' a pap smear and pelvic exam.

You??

I was in my 5' by 5' "office" yesterday, huddled around my computer with several co-workers and as many of my preschoolers as I could cram. They may not remember it, but I wanted to give them a chance to see history happen.

I was at home having a wedding anniversary. I shouldn't have too many problems remembering the Inaugurations.

Call me half-Canadian but I personally don't find this historic. Canada simply didn't(and don't) have the race problems that the US has had. So a non-white president just doesn't seem like a big deal to me personally.

You sure know how to PAR-TAY.

We have a new president. I understand that. When the election was happening, it wasn't supposed to be about race, but about ability to lead the nation. Now he is President and it is all about his race. Race this, race that? Is this a version of reverse guilt that we are supposed to feel because we, well, me, since I can only speak for myself, am white? He won the election, became President, got inaugurated, had his parties, now lets get down to the work of America. Not more Partisan politics. Now that would be a dream come true. I hope he lives up to all the promises he made and doesn't further bankrupt America. Time will tell. I guess I am just burned out. Time to show me what you can really do.

OMG LOL. What stories to tell your grandkinds! I was at work, chasing down charts and dealing with med issues. Oh, and spending as much time as I could to watch the little bitty TV in the front office.
