YES WE DID!!! YES WE DID!!!

YES WE DID!!!
I AM SO EXCITED!!!
BARACK OBAMA HAS BEEN ELECTED PRESIDENT!!
THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT!!
TO SEE HOW FAR WE'VE COME FROM SLAVERY,
AND KNOWING HOW FAR WE STILL HAVE TO GO.
I CRY TEARS OF JOY AND HAPPINESS,
FEAR AND ANXIETY,
HOPE AND PRIDE!!
MY SON CAN BE PRESIDENT!!
MY DAUGHTER CAN BE PRESIDENT!!
ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!
YES WE DID!!!

This is indeed a historic day! I don't agree with all of his views on the issues, but I certainly respect him as a man who wants to help this great country. As a civics teacher, I will certainly have a lot to talk about today! :)

Have a great day!

I cried about 10 times! And thinking of Slinky made me get all giddy for the 50th time today! One of my coworkers said something I think you'd agree with: "The air just seems cleaner, fresher today".
