Monday, January 12, 2009, would have been Aaron's 39th birthday. It seems only yesterday, on the Sunday of Super Bowl 9, that I went into labor. As you can imagine, the doctor was not happy. Especially when I arrived at the hospital and the labor stopped. He was not born until the next day.
There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of Aaron especially as we approach the inauguration of Barack Obama. As we went through the seemingly endless presidential campaign, I longed to hear his comments, especially when Sarah Palin entered the scene. Can't you just imagine his comments on that piece of work?
And so as we prepare to observe Aaron's birthday, I invite you to share your favorite Aaron story. Everyone who knew him, either personally or through his Blog, www.Uppity-Negro.com, has a story.
We wanted to give everyone a chance to say something, but have the option to have it shared publicly or sent to us privately. In any case, share your story by sending an e-mail to email@example.com and let us know if you want it to appear on the blog or if it's for our eyes alone. You'll notice comments are not open for this entry, for that reason. But trackbacks are! So if you want to share a story about Aaron and write about it on your own blog, be sure to reference this entry so we're notified of it via trackbacks. Or just to make sure, send a note to the e-mail address above with a link to your blog entry.
So, happy birthday, Aaron, from your Mom, and from your sisters, Val and Karen, and all of your fans. And share those stories!
