A New Beginning

Meet Millicent Owuor, age 20, of Kenya, who gave birth to twin sons on Wednesday.  All mothers want the world to see their children as special and what better way to leave a legacy than by what you name that child.

Say hello to her sons: Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.  

Check out the rest of the story here.

If she can find our election process inspirational enough to name her children, then perhaps America, (and this goes double for Congress), needs to quit whining about how life isn't fair and get to work on that "all men are created equal" clause.

If you can't do it for your country, do it for these namesakes representing the dream that America inspires outside her own borders.

I have to ask, but what sort of name is Mitt anyway? Do enlighten me please Hope.

Margaret: I hope they play nice together. :)

Chef: funny you should ask as Hubby said the same thing the other night. This is what I found when I answered him.

"Mitt Romney's full name is Willard Mitt Romney. Willard is for his father's friend, hotel magnate J. Willard Marriot. Middle name Mitt is for Milton Romney, his father's cousin and a former Chicago Bears quarterback."

A famous sportsman in his bloodline and he chooses a career in politics?

What a waste.
