Today is a watershed day for us. Hitting the polls as I type is Rowena Siobhan Nelson (yeah, that’s what she chose… my maiden surname and trust me, that still brings chills and tears and motherly pride to these old bones).
This is the first presidential election, the first ever opportunity to elect a woman to the highest office in the land, that I approach with my daughter at the helm of Team Nelson.
Both of us are intensely patriotic, committed to establishing equal rights and equal treatment under the law, and completely supportive of the men and women in service to our country even if we don’t always agree on national policy and directives.
We take our responsibility as citizens seriously.
Please vote. Make your voice heard.
With love and respect to all.
