ELECTION DAY

I woke up really early this morning, hours before the polls opened anywhere. I laid there thinking that today truly is a historic day. After work today, I will go and stand in line to vote, probably for hours. And when it's over, either an African American man will be elected President, or a woman will be elected vice president. Either way, it will be a first for our nation.

I feel strongly about my candidate. At the same time, I keep thinking that tonight, one candidate who truly loves his country, and has worked very, very hard, and has poured his heart and soul into this election, will be very, very disappointed. I know that it isn't the thing I'm supposed to be saying, but whether or not I agree with him politically,  I ache for that person…

I share your heart, Carol. My prayers are alive and vibrating for the hope that this election holds. But, as you said, it is hard to know that many will be disappointed and some may be disheartened. I would love and be deeply edified if Senator Obama becomes our next president. It is time.
Love to you all...

I *know.* I know, I know, I know. And each tear of joy that I shed is also a tear of knowing that gloom has descended on part of our country as well.

But Carol -- people like you are needed, to reach out to the heartsick and bridge the gap. What an awesomely sweet sentiment.
