Later, later. Later I will analyze the vote, interrogate the historical implications, and contemplate the upcoming societal and economic challenges.
Last night, election night was one of pure emotion, a warm embrace by an indescribable profound change. It was a misty-eyed moment accompanied by a deep appreciation for the American dream and promise.
McCain’s concession speech was gracious and healing, from a man I have come to believe is both decent and honorable.
I am amazed and enthralled by the oratory power of our president-elect to speak to my heart, to instill hope in place of skepticism and cynicism. I am grateful that Obama asked each of us to sacrifice and engage in national service.
My political awakening had come from the stirring words of candidate and President John F. Kennedy, and last night I again felt the youthful and unencumbered belief that great things are possible through personal commitment and collective action.
My wish is that this feeling will carry me, and the nation, forward over the next four years.
