yes we did

Yes. We Did.

And there was much rejoicing in the nation. More to come, but tonight it simply comes down to this. Yes we did. Good Lord Almighty, yes, we did.

I thought about you for a moment last night, as I bawled through his speech.

I wish there was a way to post how big my smile is, or how large and full of hope my heart feels. Just amazing and beautiful.

At last, the better angels of our nature prevailed.

At last.

I was so thrilled to hear McCain's concession speech, and Obama's acceptance speech in the middle of the night (over here).


I was less thrilled to see the Proposition 8 numbers on the LA Times site this morning... my old state really let me down on that one.

I imagine you, collapsed in an exhausted, delighted heap today.

Here was my "well, you never know, do you?" moment of the day so far: I have a student whose father is a Nigerian diplomat; the father was raised in Nigeria, but my student has been raised around the world, finally landing in Minnesota. He is, thus, African-American.

But he supported McCain and is not thrilled that Obama won. So I was reminded anew that people are always more complicated than any of us thinks.

Woo hoo!

Hallelujah! I couldn't be more thrilled!!!! I'm just giddy today, although exhausted from it all. That angel chorus kept me up all night :)

The impromptu march upon the white house was a bit freaky, though.
