I'm a single parent of two teenage boys and have struggled with raising them on my own all these years. One will graduate this year from high school, and the other is a sophomore in college. This election means I can really mean it when I tell my sons, "You can be anything you want to be." No longer is the cliché correct that children of a single mother will become a statistic, because President Obama was raised by his grandparents and his mother, and his father left when he was 2 years old—and look at him now! I will be in Washington, D.C., to witness it live with three busloads of my closest and dearest campaign volunteers and friends from New Jersey. May God bless the Obamas and the United States of America.
