Oh, Thank You America



I was so nervous last night I couldn't even watch TV. I saw up to the point they declared Pennsylvania and Ohio and then I went to bed. I couldn't stand to watch a night of indecision and waiting for results and thought I'd be better off waiting until it was final this morning, one way or the other. But, my goodness, didn't America come up big? A decisive victory and mandate from the people for a new direction for our country. I cried this morning, I really did. I grew up believing in this country and for quite a while I have had this dull dread in my heart that all the ideals I was taught were dead and buried. But it's not so. America is alive and well and we can put the lies and missteps behind us and have faith in our country again. It's a great day for America.

I don't think I slept more than a couple of hours that night. It was so exciting to watch history being made!
