It is 7:45 in the evening here, and I just finished watching the acceptance and concession speeches from last night's historic election.
I think both candidates gave great speeches.
Mr. McCain was gracious in his loss....and the people boo-ing in the crowd should heed his advice.
Mr. Obama was eloquent as ever and made me feel proud to be an American living through these times.
I do not like to be political here...but then I got to thinking about how strongly I feel.
Why should I hide behind my beliefs just because some of my blogger friends may disagree. That is what makes this world, and especially our country, go 'round. In our country we have the opportunity to freely express what we believe in. I was taught to speak out about the things that matter to me.
So, that said, let me say how excited I am that my new President will be Mr. Barack Obama. The candidate that I voted for, the candidate that I believe will help change and enhance our country.
YES WE CAN!
