Yes We Can

I am so proud.

I received some difficult personal news tonight. I cried a lot. But as the day drew to a close, I was listening to our next president give his acceptance speech, and I was crying happy tears. It was a beautiful speech.

We were watching the Indecision 2008 show when we heard some people outside screaming "Obama!" I suggested changing the channel, and we got confirmation. DC went nuts; I hung out the window for a bit to listen to the firecrackers and jubilant screaming and cheering. There were happy texts from friends and some delighted G-chatting. After a really antsy day, the good news came much sooner than I’d expected.

I really believe this is an incredible, indelible moment in history. 

On a personal note, I am so glad to be reminded that even as the Greatest Generation prepares to pass on, a new generation is stepping into place with the potential to be pretty amazing itself.

President Obama is going to be awesome. I can’t wait.
