Eight years ago, my twins and I watched President Barack Obama take the oath of office. My daughters were only a year old. Today, they are nine, and none of us will watch the inauguration of President Obama’s successor.
Instead, when they come home from school, we will re-read President Obama’s children’s book, Of Thee I Sing, and reflect on the personality traits that make someone a great leader.
For more on this book, see Of Thee I Sing: Inspiring Little Girls to be Future Leaders. I hope we will have a female president before my daughters are old enough to run for the position.
