On Election Day 1968, my mother waddled to the end of our driveway and installed a mailbox, my dad worked the polls, my older brother spent his last hours as an only child, Richard Nixon defeated Hubert Humphrey in the presidential election, and I was born. Except for that, it was a Tuesday like any other. Except for being a Tuesday like any other, it was a perfect storm.
For me, spending time with my siblings gives me a deeper appreciation for my mom and dad, for the sacrifice they've poured into our life. They taught us family is important, not in any lecture, but by their actions. My parents put time and energy into family life and we learned that building family isn't always easy.
