comments on this past election

So, Barack Obama is president elect and the world will never be the same. I felt overwhelmed with pride and love for country and neighbor, knowing that we do indeed have a working democracy, and that by the will of the people, a man with a Swahili name and mixed heritage was elected leader of this great nation.

It’s dumbfounding.

It’s amazing.

It’s beautiful–it’s America.

And I love it.

I am an American. This is my country. And I love it.
