You Have To Walk Before You Can Run

Back in January 1972 Elena was about seven months old, grabbing hold of anything she could so she could pull herself up into a standing position. Stephanie did all she could to encourage Elena to walk. At this point she had the movements down pat but hadn't quite gotten the balance part. Soon enough she got entered "terrible twos" and we either couldn't keep track of her or couldn't keep up with her.

About thirty-five years later she decided to run - for a seat on the Georgia Legislature to represent her district in Atlanta. She lost by a narrow margin. Hopefully she'll give it another try. She did learn to walk after all!
