Ambulatio Memoranda (A Walk to Remember)
November 4th, 2008 brought with it a day of uniqueness and change. The Curtis family, all avid supporters of now President-select Obama, stayed up late to witness the televised journey of the election results. Although we were all elated about the victory of our selected candidate, a point was made to ensure the children were aware of the intricacies of the race. Integrity and good sportsmanship were encouraged as it is believed that McCain and yes, even Palin, held remarkable and commendable achievements under their belts. The fact that those two did not receive a vote from our house, does not at all put to rest their reputations and accomplishments. We did not wish for our children to continue to think that choosing one candidate meant defacing and disrespecting the other. As we watched McCain's speech, we were disgusted by the boo's and childish comments made by some of his supporters and sadly enough, that ridiculous display of immaturity only reinforced our case that this type of behavior is wrong. We wish our next president only the best and hope with the assistance of all of the others within the political sector, the country will see better days.
