NapodPoMo: Episode 7 - We have a new President Elect!

November 7, 2020

Hey Everyone!

It's Episode 7 of NaPodPoMo 2020.

So we had to stop and breathe for a moment. If you're like me, you're processing a lot right now.  Today we all received news that we have a new President and VP President elect of the United States. 

History was made this election.  Kamala Harris will be the first Black Asian Female Vice President in American History.  More people also voted in this election than in any election before. 

We will continue our journey together tomorrow, but I wanted to take some time for us all to decompress, and offer my thoughts on the events of the day. I'd love to hear your thoughts as well, so get at me on one of our social media channels, or drop an email or voice mail...info below.  

Thanks everyone, and we'll strap our walking shoes back on again tomorrow.
