Yes, we did!!!

We celebrated an amazingly historic event last night. We celebrated the overwhelming election of Obama as the next President of our country and we did it at the former home of Barbara Jordan - the first black woman to ever be elected to the US House of Representatives. The twins fell asleep, but they were there and we'll tell them about it when they're old enough to understand. We drank champagne and watched as people around the world danced in the streets.

It's a future filled with hope for our country, filled with opportunities for our children, filled with the re-branding of America...

Yes we DID, indeed! Looking back at all of this country's struggles & past leadership (or lack thereof), I am finally proud to say that I am an American! Now let's all join TOGETHER and move forward, making this country as wonderful as I know it can be!
