Proud

We're Back, Baby!!




It's been tough going these past eight years. I felt extremely jaded. Like my vote would never matter. Like nothing I cared about would ever be important to the person leading our country. And that no matter what I did, who I voted for and what I supported would always be off kilter with what the American majority voted for and wanted, making me feel isolated and completely discouraged.

When Barak Obama made his victory speech. I felt like he knew all this. And that he was speaking directly to me. I'm tearing up know thinking about it.



"Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope."

And when I say "We're Back" I don't just mean Dems or Liberals or any one sect of the voting public. I mean America! What we were once and always should have been is here again.

We Are So VERY Back, Baby!

I was so happy/relieved/excited last night that I actually started crying. PJ and I popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate (and drank it all...making for a fun Wednesday morning, let me tell ya). I have never felt this way about an election in my life. It is truly a historic moment for the country.

What an awesome night. I cried all the way through both McCain's and Obama's speeches. It was beautiful.
