WE. DID. IT


Ozier Muhammad/The New York Times

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."

Barack Obama, Nov.5th 2008

I am so happy today. I have not slept much in two days. While the sun has yet to rise this morning here in California, looking out my window this morning the world looks so bright for ALL of our futures.

The people have spoken. Amen.
Feeling hopeful, yet cautious... praying that no hookers, interns, pages, or spleefs appear out of nowhere.

(My home state of California, a conservative one outside of LA and SF, has been a disappointment with voting for prop 8, Against equal rights basically); What a world?
