I am proud to be an American.
After being embarrassed to be an American.
After being ashamed to be an American. Yes, really, we elected an idiot president after all.
Today we put aside the politics of race, and rejected the politics of anger, hate and fear.
Today we elected someone who is pointing to the things we can do, instead of the things we should be afraid of.
At long last. When I was six years old, I cried when John F. Kennedy was assasinated. Today I cry because for the first time in 8 years I have some hope for this country.
