Everything seems unusually calm this morning. The election results are in. Barack Obama is my new president, one I am happy to call my president. And he actually won. It’s been such a long time since anyone’s actually clearly won a U.S. presidential election, I almost forgot what it was like. I thought Obama’s speech was fantastic last night. I’m going to print it out and keep it on the bulletin board in my office.
Now that the election is over, I have no reason to procrastinate on work. I need to hit it hard. Christmas is coming soon, and that will be another reason for delay.
I wish I could express my feelings today. I have hope and wonder, and happiness and pride filling me up, but those words still hardly do justice to my feelings. Today is a new day. The world is completely different today. I would hug everyone if I could.
