Jon Allison’s Monday Blog

Congratulations to Hillary Clinton on becoming the first woman to be a presumptive nominee for a major political party in this Country. I would not wish for my daughter to ever be President. That said, as a father raising a daughter, it’s important to me that my daughter believes that all opportunities are open to her if she chooses to pursue them. She’s only 9 now, but kids begin learning about Presidents by that age in school and she is well aware there has never been a woman who was President. I’m not sure whether someone pointed that out to her or if she noticed on her own, but she’s aware. Kids get a lot of input about what they can’t do and/or aren’t expected to be able to do. Clinton’s achievement sends a powerful message about what can be done.
