So I have to admit that I cared more about the outcome of the Presidential race than I knew. I had no intention of watching or reading any of the results last night but found myself online, ostensibly to look up something that had been nagging at me, when I ended up on Facebook and getting a play-by-play from one of my friends. I was Googling like mad, too, hoping, hoping. When the news came in that Obama had been declared the winner, there were tears of relief and joy. And hope.
Though I’ve long been sick of the political ads, there was one in particular that stuck out, in which an average working Joe said “Stick with this guy. He will move us forward.” Call me a cock-eyed optimist, a fool, a dreamer, but I believe that.
Better days ahead, for all of us.
