What a Week for the History Books

Monday we honored history, Tuesday we watched it.

 

I can watch the history channel for hours on end, curl up to read a nice fat historical memoir, and I minored in History in college for no practical reason other than I simply liked learning about history.

 

If that's not enough for you, when you hear a Daybreak trivia question concerning a day in history, I'm the one who looked it up. And usually, the only one who got excited about it!

 

All of that usually leaves me open to some friendly jesting from people around me, but even they have to admit this week was one for the history books!

 

Monday, our country paused to remember those brave men and women who have given their lives for our country. It is because of them I can choose to write this blog about any subject I want to speak my mind about. For their efforts, I am eternally grateful.

 

Tuesday, we watched as our President chose his first nomination for the highest court in our nation - a history making pick. Not just because if she is confirmed Sonia Sotomayor would become the first Hispanic to serve on the United States Supreme Court and just the third woman, but because she is now part of a select group that has the opportunity to interpret the words of our forefathers and apply their original concepts to our modern life.

 

And this is when we look to the future, because the decisions Sotomayor could possibly make as justice of the supreme court will directly affect ours. Every day in the United States we're making history one way or another - just imagine who is going to read about it someday!
