Being one of the few Democrats where I work has been a challenge. There is one thing for sure, if you are a blue dot in a red state, you better have a sense of humor. I get political jokes all the time. That's OK, it comes with the territory.
I was really proud last night. Our country transcended years of segregation, bigotry, racial tension, and turmoil and elected the first African American in history. I'm not sure our forefathers would have dreamed it could happen.
I had an early class this morning, but I could not tear myself away from the TV until I heard what Obama had to say. What I heard was an expression of gratitude for the service that his opponent John McCain had selflessly given to America. I share this view.
I also heard Obama tell the world that we ALL have a lot of work to do. The road will not be easy but TOGETHER, we can get America back on the right track. I was humbled and inspired.
It is not my intention to address the subject of politics on this blog very often, but I am proud of our country and excited for our future.
