today i am still grinning from ear to ear, amazed and inspired by the results of last night's election.
i have always always felt incredibly blessed to be an american, to live a life of so much freedom and opportunity, but it wasn't until yesterday that i truly felt proud to be an american. i'm proud of the citizens of this country and i'm proud of the man we have elected to be the 44th president of the united states of america. he represents the best of what this nation is about and he inspires me on so many levels that it is difficult to put it into words. this election is not about race, or age, or gender; it's about a new generation of politics and politicians. it's about doing what is right, and just, for americans and for the global community.
i know we have a long and arduous journey ahead of us - an economic crisis, an environmental crisis, a broken political system - but i have faith. i have hope. this is something that we can do. yes we can.
