Tonight, we lived history

He said that we could.

And we did.

We went out, we voted.

Together, we elected the first bi-racial president of the United States.

I’m still in shock.

And I am so looking forward to see what happens the next four years.

For the first time since post 9/11, I’m extremely proud of my country.

I’m proud to be an American today.

Again. Finally.



  1. woop woop

  2. Tonight just feels so good, and I love that we have this America to show the world. I stand in awe at the progress we’ve made in such a short time, and I am inspired.

  3. For the first time ever, I broke and voted Democrat – going against my entire family, extended family, in-laws and co-workers (military). I voted with my heart and not my head. One candidate made me cringe and one inspired. And I think I’m just tired of old white men telling me what to do.

  4. true, but as the good man said, there is somuch more to to.

    Troubling ballot initiative results in Cali, Arizona, Florida, and maybe most unsettling Arkansas.

    For what it’s worth…
    Barack’s parent’s marriage was illegal in 17 states at the time of his birth

    Call me a bleeding heart liberal, but I believe what I believe.

  5. I am totally awed by the goings on the nation today, and so VERY VERY proud

  6. As the whitest of white girls, I’m standing along with all of the bi-racial and minority people in cheering and crying. Gah… here I go again w/ the tears…

  7. And best of all – everyone whose gathered isn’t gather because of carnage. They’re holding hands, metaphorically, to celebrate birth.

  8. I’m liking this change..

  9. DITTO. In all caps.

  10. oh, and to a whole lot of nothing – I believe than I am the whitest of white girls.


  11. I’m still exhausted. Mentally drained after the last two years.

    I’m thinking I need to drink heavily and reboot.

  12. It was definitely a night for history being made….

    He had my vote pretty much from the onset, and soon it’ll be time to deliver.

  13. It was an electrifying night! I am proud of our country too!
