My mother was born in the Deep South four years before women were given the right to vote in the 19th amendment to the Constitution. At the age of 24, she cast her first presidential vote for Franklin Roosevelt for his third term. She has never missed a vote since. Eight years ago she proudly voted for a person of color for the first time. Today, in her 100th year and her 20th presidential election, she cast her vote for a woman. I’m so glad she lived to see this day. #Imwithher.
