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.
