dear ms b-break it


now ms b
dont worry i am not talking about any habits
potty training
dont get upset

its in the long run something that is more important
to at least half of the folks in our country

its that glass ceiling that is yet to be broken
theres governors mayors representatives senators cabinet members
still that one ceiling is not broken yet

now ms b
it seems according to some
that women make much better senators than men
well i think its from being a mother and a female
you well you learn to compromise
im sure you gma and mom know about that
your gma says im not good at that

now last week a lot of women thought that ceiling
was finally going to be broken
well it sort of was since most americans
maybe by as much as 2 million when the final votes are counted
wanted that ceiling to be broken
theres this thing called the electoral college that
yes you got it ms b
old white men set up so that the common man didnt
get to really decide who got president
yes i know i am an old white man
but i am also a common man

you need to put that one on your bucket list to fix someday

that ceiling would have been broken this month this year
like when the first catholic or the first southerner or the
first black president got elected

well this one didnt fall last week
the first women president

now it takes a generation to cultivate someone
to become president
so someone in your age group is out there now
being on the path to
break that ceiling

you know
this may be the time in our countrys history when
a women president is needed the most

who do we turn to usually when things go wrong
when we are kids
thats right
we run to our mothers

we all know that
we all feel that
maybe its instinctive in us
it to be better if we have a women president

so ms b
i want you to start reading your history books
your civic books your sociology books your psychology books
your law books to start the prep work

so that by the time you get there
you will have all the tools you need
break that final glass ceiling
