I'm HOPEful, but nervous. I remember how devastated I was in 2004 when Dubya got reelected, so I'm not going to "measure the drapes" quite yet. For a while, I lost faith in the ability of our country to come together. I worried that we would always at the mercy of a government that divided us and continued to make decisions that hurt it's citizens. This year, however, I've been inspired.
I know, without a doubt that I made the right choice in the voting booth today. I have full confidence that my candidate can bring the CHANGE WE NEED to our country. I have been impressed with the Obama campaign, always staying on message and taking the high road in the face of so much negativity. I have been moved by the sight of citizens working together to take back our country to make it respectable again. I am happy to see the anti-intellectual movement losing ground. We need to have some smart people in charge for a change.
Fingers crossed, prayers said, vote cast. . . there's nothing left to do but hurry up and wait.
