It's A Beautiful Thing

I'll be honest, in the beginning when the two Democratic candidates were a Woman and an African American man I thought we were screwed. Not because I didn't think they were capable of doing an amazing job...but because I didn't think this country had come far enough to elect either one.

And then there was Tuesday...and I witnessed one of the most beautiful moments of my life. I had tears....and my throat hurt from the lump that was stuck there with pride and overwhelming joy for the 44th President of the USA. I am so proud of how far our country has come. I am so proud of Barack Obama.

Let Him Be Well
Let Him Be Happy
Let him Bring Peace
(a little something borrowed from my yoga instructor)

You know, I didn't cry when it was announced. I just felt so relieved; As if I had been holding my breath for all these months and could finally take a new breath. The sweet relief!
The hope and exuberance of this new era feels so good.

Rosa sat,
so Martin could walk,
so that Obama could run,
so that we could fly.
