Impressed and Proud

Without getting too political I just wanted to say that I'm proud to call myself an American today. I haven't been able to say that for several years, but today it's true. I am impressed with my fellow Americans and feel fortunate to be a part of this huge chapter in American History. Despite my negative feelings about McCain I must say that during his concession speech he handled himself with grace and dignity--he certainly surprised and impressed me! Obama's victory speech was one filled with hope for a better future. I am hopeful for our future and I am so ready for the much needed changes to come! I'm sure things will be rough at first, but everything in it's infancy has kinks to iron out. Congratulations Obama and best wishes!

My stake is much less than yours, as I'm Canadian, but I'm impressed and proud too! Go Obama! That was a good move for all of us, I think.

I feel the same way!

When I went to vote yesterday, I was really struck by the number of people and it really made me feel like I was a part of something important, and ya know what? I was!
