The End of An Era

While watching election coverage last night, my mom made a really insightful comment.

"It's the end of an era.  Rich white males are starting to be transitioned out of office, because they don't represent the interests of most American citizens anymore."

Wise words, Lisa.  And true ones too.  Take a look at just a few of the lovely people who were elected:

Tulsi Gabbard - the first Hindu to be elected to Congress.  

Tammy Baldwin - the first openly gay person to be elected to the Senate.

Maggie Hassan - the only female Democratic Governor in the country.


Thank.  God.

And guess who got passed over: the oh so sensitive Todd Akin and his wing man Richard Mourdock.

I was real nervous about these elections.  But I think it's clear that our new government officials better represent the diversity of America.   We are a country of many religions, many political views, and many life paths, and I am blessed beyond words to be part of a nation that celebrates such diversity.
