As a father myself, I can fathom the depth of happiness you are feeling and what your children might be feeling and your wife too. At the same time, you have learned something that PATIENCE is very important if you really want to achieve something. Wait for opportune time and express your views in a more polite and decent expression and also words which others will scratch their head to point fingers or find fault with your expression. It seems you have started your political journey but under law and under constitution of the land.
