yes we did

That's all I have to say for now. It was a long day of poll watching and return watching, but everything was worth this feeling. It was all worth knowing that my daughter will grow up not thinking that there are boundaries to what she or others can achieve. It was worth it to feel proud and consequential.

Yes we can. Yes we did. Yes we will continue.

Yes! I went to bed happy and woke up hopeful. I've never felt that way after voting in an election before.

Thanks for all you did to help make this happen!

A friend at work gave me a pretty little Obama pin and told me that when this is all over, I need to keep that pin, put it somewhere so that when I have children, when they're old enough to understand, I can show them that pin and tell them how important this all was. Drew and I were talking about this last night...how this one moment could take this country so far. Maybe in my children's lives, racism will be part of their past, not their present, and I'll be able to tell them that this moment helped put it there.

I am amazed at how restrained this post is. I figured you would be crazy ape-sh!t like Oprah today. I must say that I am anxious to see what will happen in the coming months.
