yes, we did!

as i sit here, in tears, i have no words.

BARACK OBAMA IS NOW THE PRESIDENT ELECT OF THE UNITED STATES.

i feel hope has come. i feel change has come. and it feels so good.

how many of us had forgotten what hope felt like? the feeling of hope on a large scale. the feeling of the excitement that only hope brings.

i watch the people on tv. the crowds chering. crying. the faces, full of excitement, that yes, maybe now, hope has come. and with it, change. it's in their faces. their eyes.

it began with yes, we can. and now.... YES, WE DID!!

be well :)

Just as CNN declared this an Obama-Nation, my dog decided he had to go outside. I took him out in front, and I could hear my kinda rural neighborhood hooting and hollering, lots of cheers and happiness! So nice to hear. And nice to have him on his way to the White House.
