What a headline!

November 4, 2008

That’s from the homepage of www.nytimes.com right now.  What’s the most impressive, not the “OBAMA” line.  To me the most important is “Racial Barrier Falls in Heavy Turnout”.  One of the most proud moments I’ve had in my 31 years.  Proud of our country.

Thanks to all who voted.  Remember this feeling, what it’s like to play a part in the process.  No matter if your choice is victorious or not, it’s PARTICIPATING that’s the key.

And thanks to everyone who finally was able to put the “race card” back in the deck with all the other issues.  Especially after living in the South for nearly a decade, it puts a big smile on my face to see Virginia and (at this point in the evening, possibly) North Carolina vote for an African American for the highest office in the land.

As John McCain is saying right now in his concession, let’s all “find ways to come together” to help restore our prosperity, enhance our security, and make this country a better place.  “We are all fellow Americans.”

Congratulations America.  Job well done.
