I saw my kids walking on logs in the middle of a field of weeds. But no. They were on boats in the middle of the ocean. I saw a pile of sticks and a giant spool of wire. They saw a magical clubhouse. It didn’t stop with imagination. They got to work and helped each other drag branches to one side. After an hour of working together, they had created an actual clubhouse with walls and a ceiling and a door. Imagination plus hard work can accomplish wonders.

After last night’s historic election, I am feeling optimistic. Yes, America has problems. Yes, the last eight years have left a huge mess. But I have hope. Obama is a leader who will unite our country; his message is one of inclusion, not exclusion. With a little inspiration and a lot of hard work, I believe that we will be able to create something great out of this pile of sticks.
