“People have been cheering all night up here. Everyone is really happy.”

Politically involved 18-22 year olds at a very small college in Appalachia are celebrating right now. Instead of screaming and cheering, I weep quiet tears of happiness. Tomorrow, we must begin moving forward as a united nation. As difficult as the past two years were, they were easy compared to the tasks that we face now, but for ourselves and our children, yes we can.

  1. No one cheering here, most of my friends devastated and not talking to me 🙁 I had to cancel our poker night on Friday because I think it is too soon. We were hugging and celebrating quietly within our family. I lost a bet to Mr.Goldie because I never believed we could actually pull this one off. Now I have to pay up )))
    I actually missed the announcement on TV. I started dozing off when I heard it and jumped up, “wait, WHAT?”
    Still can’t believe it. Hope we don’t blow this opportunity.

  2. I’m very moved by the reaction around the world.
    I love your blog!!! Couldn’t wait to read it today.

  3. Happy Birthday Shea!
    I am stunned, too Goldie. Happy though!
    Thank you Debra. I’m enjoying the world’s embrace of an intelligent leader in the US.
