My reactions to change, the election, and Barack Obama

6 Nov

As a “mongerer of hope” myself, I see a lot of myself in Barack Obama.

In his practicality, vision, and opportunity this amazing campaign.

I hope that Americans understand what this means, this thing that
we’ve all done. The next 4-8 years of our country is in the hands of
Barack Obama and the democrats now– I feel, though, that He may be
the only one who truly knows what that change means. I realized that
this was possible on realizing that all eras must end.

The only doubt is that everyone might not be ready for this. It just
takes one racial bigot with a gun to cause a national tragedy, a
possibility that seems all too real to me.

Dark thoughts aside, its been great to be a part of our democracy.
From here out, anything is possible. we did our part!

Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister’s eyes, into
Your brother’s face, your country
And say simply
Very simply
With hope
Good morning.

For Obama’s acceptance speech:

Good morning.
