I apologize in advance for the mixed thoughts and long winded sentences. My thoughts and emotions are everywhere right now and I have yet to get it all straight.
I can't seem to put into words exactly how I am feeling about this enormous change that we are about to embark on as a country. I get so emotional whenever I think about it or talk about it.
I am so excited for the changes that are about to happen. While watching Obama's acceptance speech last night I had a case of the never-ending goosebumps. I kept crying. I would no more than finish drying up my face when the tears would start running down my face again. It got worse when he would make a statement and follow it up with, "Yes, we can" and the crowd would repeat it back. Oh man!
The way I feel about this historical moment is how I felt the very first time I heard Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech. It moved me beyond belief.
I just saw this video for the first time when my friend, Carrie, posted it on her blog. It made me cry like a baby.
I am beyond words for how excited and proud I am of our country right now. I can't believe we have made history just now. Go Barack Obama! I am thrilled to have you as my president. And Dr King - slowly but surely, it looks like your dream is coming true.
I'm Kristine and I approve this message!
