This Just In...America Has Spoken

Barack Obama is the 44th President Elect of the United States of America. Honestly I thought it was possible, but I don't know if I ever believed it would happen in my lifetime. But it has, and the first thing I did was fall on my knees and pray a blessing of protection over him and his family. This is a totally new era in world history, and I am blessed to have been able to see it. God Bless America, for finally living up to the standards, ( The Constitution), on which it was formed. I have never been prouder to be an American, than at this very moment.

I saw the news at first on "Indecision '08" a mix of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report". I thought it was a joke, so I turned to CNN, where I heard the same news, I was awestruck. Had McCain won it would have been equally as daunting, a woman as Vice President, and a real viable choice, someone with spunk and gumption, who is quick on her feet and willing to step up. HIStory has been written in a phenomenal way this year. May it continue to be so.

John McCain's concession speech was admirable. It was eloquent, supportive, and gracious, without being overly placating. It was generally well received and he handled the crowd superbly (for the most part). He's definitely no "W", and I am "especially grateful" for that.

God Bless America
Be Safe.

I found your blog through Reclaiming the Home group on Ravelry, and I very much appreciate this post.
I, too, felt such pride in us as Americans-- hope won out over cynicism for once.
My city just erupted in joy on election night. It caught me by surprise. I expected people to be happy, but this was something else entirely-- horns honking and people cheering until about midnight.
Here's to 8 years (yes, 8) of sanity!
