I’m taking the day to just let last night’s monumental results sink in. Amid the daily stuff of preparing math lessons, drying another load of clothes, putting away dishes and worrying about the thinness of my wallet, I find myself stopping to smile, to tear up, to remember some of the most amazing words I’ve heard from a politician.
I don’t think there will be a more important election in my lifetime. I will not forget the images from last night and the pride on all the faces in the crowd. Whether you supported Barack Obama or not, last night was historic and has changed the history of America.
Oh look at me, getting all Olbermann on you here. So I’ll hush up and get back to making my lentil soup. But really, let’s all take the day to reflect on this. What a difference 24 hours can make.
