Sorry, it wasn’t THAT historic of a day

This morning was Barack Obama was inaugurated of the 44th president of the United States. Congratulations, now it’s time to get to work.
Of course, I had to laugh at what my 4-year old daughter Anika had to say when Obama stepped up to take the oath of office. Looking completely stunned, fixated on the television, completely frozen:
“Mom! But…Dr. Martin Luther King is supposed to be DEAD!!!”
Ooops, not bad for a 4-year old, but kind of hilarious in it’s own way.
To put this in context, you have to remember that January 18th is MLK Day in the US. Kids usually get a day off of school, and the week before there is usually a history lesson about the civil rights leader. In her pre-school, they taught lessons about why he was important, how he stood up on front of millions of people, and gave a speech… so you can see where this went.
Sorry honey, it isn’t THAT historic of a day. Just a new President.
(why is this blog-worthy? Heck, I don’t know…it’s probably not. But I laugh when I think about it, which is about where my internal “do I publish” bar is located)
