As I was watching Nominee Presumptive Clinton speak tonight, I thought about my daughter asleep upstairs, and I also thought about a post I wrote last summer on the day that same sex marriage was declared constitutional. I want to repurpose a chunk of that post tonight:
I don’t know much about how my kids will turn out when they get older. I know a few things though.
I know my daughter will be a massive dork (as she cried last night that she missed school as she was not learning enough new things at summer camp, and could we buy her some new math workbooks). I know she will be a goof ball with a massive amount of empathy and a strongly developed sense of fairness. I know that when she is adult, her possibility space will be massive….
I have no clue…
Their possibility space just widened a little bit this morning. Being their dad, that makes my day.
She could be president some day.
Now let’s go win so that she’ll have a positive example instead of a wistful what may have been when she starts her campaign in 2046.
