Election day

2 Nov

Today is election day. A chance for people to make a good decision for their future. Sometimes I can be very involved in politics. Other times I am more removed. At this point in time i am somewhat in between. I know who has the ideals – at least on paper – that are best for my family. Hook has always voted with me. Since just a few days after he was born he has accompanied me to the polls. And today was no different – except that he was able to vote too (in a kids election). This opened the door to some discussion about the candidates for governor. At dinner we were talking about one candidate who doesn’t like gays. Hook said “but i’m gay.” we explained that he isn’t necessarily gay but that we are. His response: “well can I be your half gay son?”
