January 20th was truly a day of incredible change for America. Finally, we have a leader whose face is a true representation of the face of America – the WASP image fading and in its place; a richer, more vibrant tapestry was slowly taking shape.
America is a vivid and diverse tapestry, but our leaders have not been a true reflection of that diversity. President Obama has been working on revealing the lush image in an amazingly and incredibly intelligent way. At long last, we have a Hispanic selection for the nation’s highest court, one that Mr. Obama described as a candidate with empathy for “people’s hopes and struggles.”
Empathy in a justice, what a novel idea.
I am more than impressed with her and him!
I would say that the naysayers would have a tough time taking her down.
I have a feeling she well knows how to rise above the fray, with her eyes fixed on the prize nothing could get in her way.
Let the Republicans cry foul, I think you more than measure up, Sonia Sotomayor!
So, Gentle Reader – I Sotomayor, do you?
On a side note, I have done some remodeling here at Casa Del KatKnits; there may be more so stay tuned!
