Congratulations, Mr. President
I am so proud to be an American tonight! Finally, we as a nation are living up to the promise of our great Declaration of Independence.
No matter your politics, no matter your opinions about this man's stance on specific moral issues, social issues, financial issues, or whatever, I hope you at least take a moment to give thanks for the privilege of witnessing this historic event in our lifetime.
Perhaps the best part of tonight is having my children ask why this was such a big deal. After all, in their minds, it just seems to make perfect sense that a person of color could be elected President of the United States. In their words, "Why not?"
I love that we are finally at this point.
