A moment in time

"I know at the end of the day, putting this in God's hands, the right thing for America will be done at the end of the day on Nov. 4," - Sarah Palin

It took a while to really sink in, but as I stood there watching Barack deliver his victory speech I was moved to tears! We did this...every American that voted made their voice heard and at the end of the day it was clear - - we said "yes we can" to change and "yes we did"! Last night I was able to experience something so moving, so momentous...it was amazing. Not only did we produce one of the largest voter turnouts in over 100 years (64%) but everyone was able to come together and celebrate our future as a nation...a nation soon to be under the leadership of a man that cares - -a true public servant in every sense of the word. President Elect Barack Obama shows that it is possible to have a president that truly cares for the people...elected by the people...winning over 50% of the popular vote and over 300 electoral votes (2nd president to ever do this...Bill Clinton was the other). Everyone should rejoice...because things are headed into a new direction, a better direction.
