YES WE CAN!!!
This morning I sit here, almost too overwhelmed to write. I never thought I would see this day. This morning, I almost didn't leave the house, but the roomies badgered me into it. I drove to DC, prepared to wait (I had the ipod, a skein of yarn, needles, and a new sock pattern). I parked and prayed Iwouldn't get a ticket. The line was very long, much longer than in past elections, and I was suprised and pleased by the number and range of voters. Black, white, hispanic, the young as well as the elderly. It has never felt so good to cast a vote. I have never felt so strongly about a candidate. I can say I participated. I voted for the first African American President of the United States of America. I have never felt so proud.
