Obama dollar

Dear Gus.

You’ve been asleep for the last 2 hours and in that time, the world has changed.

Hopefully for the better.

Below is a picture of the dollar that I won from your Grandpa tonight. (He’d only make the bet once I had given him 10 to 1 odds.)

I think I’ll put it in your baby book so that it becomes the first money I ever give you. Because, while I mostly steer clear of symbol these days (trying to see things as they are and not as I wish them to be), just for tonight I am going to celebrate the progress that has just been made and to hope for more in the future.

Love, Mom

  1. Yes, I did think about how your mom would have joined me in my tears of gratitude at the possibilities for the future.
