I am so happy and so beside myself today.
Last night, as everyone knows, Barack Obama won the presidential election.
I think that this is a sign of great things to come. Speaking for myself, I am tired of this administration and everything that it has put us through. I am tired of the war, and all the talk about the terrible shape our economy is. Mostly I am tired of the all negativity that has surrounded us for the last eight years.
Barack Obama is inspirational. Not only in his message, but also as a person. I have never had the privilage to live in a United States where people actually look up to the president as a hero. As somone who is truly respected and admired. Someone who really deserves to be the president. I realize that not everyone feels the same way, but I feel that a majority of the country does, and I think that is what is most important.
I have never been to big on discussing politics in my blog, or even with people that I am not very close to. However, this election has really moved me. I knew that which ever way the outcome went last night I was going to be a teary mess in the end. But that wasn't the case at all. I was in total shock. I realized that after 10 mintues my mouth was still wide open. I didn't know what to say, or feel, or think. I watched the speaches, and I tear came down, but that was it.
Not until this morning, when reality really set in. I was in the middle of working out, and I just lost it. I am in fact tearing up as I right this. I just can't fathom how important this is for our country. How incredible it all is.
It is truly inspirational. He is truly inspirational. I can honestly say that I am proud of my country today. For the first time. Maybe the first time ever.
