We all witnessed history tonight. I recognize the anger, pain and hurt I see in my friends who were supporters of John McCain…I felt the same 4 years ago tonight. However, I was moved on this night unlike any other time in my lifetime. The cynics will snicker at that statement…I know because I have been a cynic for quite some time. I’ll admit I was gloating as the wave of electoral votes began to reveal the obvious. However, that all began to change when John McCain began what I thought was a great speech. It reintroduced us all to the man who has given his life to our country. His true love was revealed. I believed what he said when he offered to help President-elect Obama to bring this nation together.
Barack Obama then gave the speech of a true leader. He was not looking back at a successful campaign but looking forward to lead the United States of America. I believe, despite all our troubles and crises, this could be our finest hour…but not as Democrates or Republicans. We’ll only be able to do this together. On this night, I really am proud to be an American.
Peace! I’m going to bed…….
