I have laughed, I have cried, I have hugged my children, who also laughed and cried. I took them with me canvassing and they voted in mock elections at school. My 8th grade son has argued so much in favor of Obama at school, he even had to give a speech in favor of him for his English class. I cannot believe I was lucky enough to meet our President-Elect. I am so proud of so many in our country. It is time we grew up...and I think we just did.
I do have to say how disappointed I was with the reaction of the crowd at the McCain rally when he conceded...the boos each time he said Barack's name. If you looked at the makeup of those crowds, it told you alot. Angry whites vs. everyone else. It was a beautiful crowd in Chicago, and at each Obama rally.
I am so proud to have helped turn Indiana blue for the first time since 1964. I am so proud to be an American today, and I feel like, for the first time, I have helped to accomplish something incredibly important on an international scale.
It will not be easy.....but together.......
YES WE CAN!
