It is a historic day today. Let’s take a moment to remember how far women have come in this world, no matter what side you’re on. It makes me so emotional to think of all those who broke glass ceilings and paved the way for a woman to *finally* become Vice President of the United States. Truth from Sojourner. Tubman’s Harriet. Chisholm Shirley. Ruth Ginsburg Bader. Harris Kamala. I salute both of them. And to our nation’s young girls…. Big hopes. Whatever is possible.
