The hardest part of this election is the discovery that several of my family members are racist. It was difficult and painful to hear their jokes. To receive their texts. To listen to their excuses.
I know that it's rooted in fear. That when you've never been exposed to different cultures, different colors, different opinions it is difficult to to embrace the unknown.
I'm so happy that my children are excited and optimistic about our 44th President.
And my sheltered and narrow minded family, have yourself a heapin' helpin' of CHANGE.
