Randon Ramblings...

I have so much swirl in my brain right now I almost can't stand it...Here are some quick pics..The first is KJ with his "best birthday present ever!"...And the rest are from the beach:

One thing that's top of mind for me today is all the coverage about "BarakO," as KJ calls him, being the first black president in the US. I was raised to be color-blind. Have never really been prejudice. None of my kids are white. And the thought that flashed right through my brain was"Oh, yeah, he is black isnt he." I totally get the historical significance. It is, and this is a huge step in the right direction, but my real question is...How long will it take until color actually becomes a non-issue?
