Someone probably noticed the exciting and yet hectic experience that my young son Samir and others went through during the days leading to the election.

It was around 2pm today and I was about to take my family for a trip to my in-laws’ place in Virginia. All of a sudden, I received a call from a family friend to stop by at a residence in the West Hollywood area. And there waiting was a huge surprise party for my entire family. About two dozen families arranged a potluck lunch in appreciation of what they think a “good try”.

It’s amazing how big others think and care about you; even though what you’re doing seems so little and never enough to you. A big ‘Thank You’ to all who arranged such a great afternoon event full of fun for everyone.
