YES WE DID!
I am so excited I can barely type. I can't even wrap my mind around this amazing moment in time. I cry and laugh and get all giddy at once. I weep for Obama's parents and grandmother who couldn't be here to witness this greatness. I am so excited for the possibilities this presidency brings. I am inspired to do so much more in my own life because of what Barack Obama has done with his. He had the audacity to hope for this, why can't I and the rest of you do the same? Imagine what could happen...
I'll write more later, but right now I can't see through my tears. In the meantime, for some excellent commentary about this historic win, check out some of the articles on The Root. Make sure you read the essay by Henry Louis Gates Jr.
I am for the very first time in my 36 years of life, really proud to be an American right now.
