I jumped up and down and screamed last night, spilling champagne down the front of my clothes, and not caring one bit. I cried tears of joy and then slept like a baby. There’s a spring in my step this morning and a smile on my face. I feel a sense of relief and hope, and I’m no longer afraid.
I will write more later about what this victory means to me and what I think it means for the U.S. and the world. But right now, I just want to enjoy and savor the moment.
I found myself humming this song a little while ago, and thought it would be a great way to start a beautiful day like this.
Welcome President Barack Obama! For the first time in eight years, I can say, “That’s my President!”
