The eyes of the world were watching.
Waiting to see if we did the right thing - this time around.
We did!
As Charlie Gibson waited till just after the polls in the west closed and
quietly looked up and declared Barack Obama the winner, I cried.
No, actually, I sobbed.
I have hope and my vote counted.
It never felt so good as to cast my vote for Obama yesterday!
It was a clear and thundering victory!
This country has the opportunity to return to the honor and prominence it once had.
To be admired not joked about.
To be whole and not fractured.
As Obama said, we have placed our hand on the ark of history......
Oh to have been in Grant Park last night............
I woke up today, slightly hung over, but with hope.
A feeling I have not had in a very long time.
For all who have felt cast aside,
this is your moment.
For all who felt like less than equal,
this is your moment.
For all who had lost hope America would ever begin to heal,
this is your moment.
For Barack and Michele Obama and Joe and Jill Biden,
you have all worked so hard and sacrificed so much,
this is your moment.
May you shine!

I'm tired, but proud to be an American!!!!!!!!!!
