We see you, Madam Vice President!
This election has been a roller coaster of emotions. It tested our collective patience as we all waited with bated breath for the final results. Thankfully for 50.7% of Americans, this news came with a collective sigh of relief that there was no longer going to be a hate monger in the White House. As people across the country, and the world, celebrated some of the youngest revelers sat in awe. On Saturday, Nov. 7th, 2020, they recognized that they too could sit in the second-highest office in the country. We are grateful for all those women who fought for our right to vote and paved the way as political figures to get Kamala Harris to where she is today.

Here are some of our favorite reactions to her acceptance speech to become Madam Vice President Harris.
Charles Amin Gilford III
”For my baby girl at 3 seeing what is possible for her…”
”When your granddaughter look at you and say she wants to be the Vice President. You look back at her and say you CAN be and you Can be President also.”
”My 4yr old daughter who has already proclaimed that she is going to be the Future Astronaut.”

My boys volunteered with me and campaigned hard. My 11 yr old was watching the numbers and doing the math like a pro the last 2 days. He jumped so high, he almost hit the ceiling when the call was finally made. ✊ pic.twitter.com/dcWMrv8kRV
