Wednesday, November 5


I've never seen this before. I've never witnessed an election night that had people gathering in public places to celebrate. I don't mean the rally planned by the Obama campaign. I mean, people in New York and San Francisco, Seattle. College campuses.In church halls and community centers. In neighborhood parks. I've never witnessed joy like this for an election.

I haven't witnessed joy like this in America for years. For any reason.

The pundits will debate all the reasons and implications. Me, I'm just going to allow this new sense of hope to settle into my soul, into my bones.

I'm going to risk feeling joy for a while.
