In light of the recent personal and public developments I interupt my travel journal
Madelyn Dunham, 86, died peacefully at her home in Honolulu.
How ironic that the woman who devoted so much of her life to raising a boy into a man was not able to stay around one day longer to see him elected President of the United States of America. How must Barack feel on this day before the nation decides whether it wants to move forward or stay mired in politics as usual . How can he take the time to grieve for his beloved Grandmother. We are holding our breath to see what will happen next.
Perhaps her death and her grandson's reaction will allow those undecided voters to see the strength that this candidate possesses.
This is truly historic times that we are currently living in while our country faces so many challenges and the leader we choose tomorrow will make a difference in all of our lives.
Currently we are in Moab and after hiking in Arches National Park I will be paying close attention to the returns, hopefully in some interesting restaurant with like minded folks celebrating an unprecedented victory.
