Political issues aside, I am very proud to say that yes, I was there when history was made. It was my right and my responsibility to hold the hands of my children and to walk to the Chicago Grant Park Obama Rally with them. It was my right and my responsibility to let them see and hear and feel the excitement, when this nation took a step much greater than it has ever taken before.
It was my right and my responsibility as a mother to let my sons to be a part of that historical night. I don't know how much they will remember, but in 20 years from now when they ask I can look them in the eye and say yes, we were there too.
