I strive to stay "on topic" here at Moms4McCain, but I have to give a shout-out to two of our Olympic Mom Athletes representing the U.S. in Beijing:
Dara Torres, age 41 and mother of an 18-month-old, earned a Silver Medal as part of the women's 4 x 100 Swimming relay team.
Michelle Roach, a mother of three, including an autistic son, lives in Tacoma, and is a 119-pound weightlifter (seriously). She competes tonight (Sunday).
I don't know either of their political leanings, but as a Mom who is, er, athletically-challenged, my hat is off to both of you, and the many American Moms representing our nation with pride!
P.S. To all the people who say Sarah Palin can't be our Vice President because she has young children, consider the level of commitment these athlete Moms put forth. Then ask yourself: what we should tell our daughters? That motherhood is an excuse to slow career growth and give up on our dreams? Or a reason to keep growing and follow them?
