Generation O

I saw an Obama baby onesie the other day with those words on it. I like it. I like that my daughter was born into an era where a white woman and a black man were presidential candidates, and where a black man with an accomplished wife and two daughters won. I am still in giddy awe and amazement at this new era of our country. Regardless of what happens during the next four (or eight? dare I think it?) years, this is momentous. I dare to be optimistic about it. This is our new world.
