Eloquently and beautifully written. I enjoyed this post very much. Thanks!

This was a very moving post. Part of me is still in a state of disbelief, I had hoped and hoped this change would happened but a large part of me stayed on guard. In my less than 30 years of life I have never before put my faith into a politician, until now. I voted for the first time in this election. And it was the same for so many of my friends. Obama really has captivated our generation that has grown up completely jaded concerning the politics of this country. But we have dared to hope that change is possible and I truly hope it is.

Very powerful post, Cynthia. I can't believe you have witnessed so much - I feel overwhelmed still by the election results, but I guess that's what happens when you shake up history.

I gave myself yesterday to grieve the many losses suffered here locally, but today I'm moving on to the inspiration. :)

Speaking of, I was inspired by this and linked you here http://momocrats.typepad.com/momocrats/2008/11/their-loss-is-o.html

Cindy, I did link to this post, but I can never get the "trackback URL" with Typepad to work. It's in the post:

I read it this morning. I never would have thought about Grant Park in '68 and the comparison there. Very well said.

This time, when the whole world was watching, it was with joy, not horror. This time, when people couldn't believe it was real, the sight was like a dream come true, not a nightmare.

Thanks for posting this.

What an incredibly poingnant, beautifully written post.

I'm still walking on air.....

Julie of course you're right. There is so much to do. But for the first time in so long I sense we are at least starting forward in the right direction! All we can ask for this far - now we have to keep it on course.

Judy

What a beautiful, poignant post, Cindy. So very true.

excellent post. there was no greater joy than watching a piece of myself in my daughter experiencing this election.

oh, except for the outcome. let the work begin!

Beautiful post, Cindy. My heart is beating the same idealist, fervent beat that it had when I was a young protester in the "movement", like you, taking to the streets to re-claim our country. Wondrous, beautiful, historic moment. As we say in Texas, I can't hardly believe it."

Great post, thank you for sharing! I am excited, so amazed that we as a country have come so far.

Julie Pippert

It is awesome---AWEsome---this progress, this achievement, what has been accomplished and what can be, what will be.

But that commentator is dead wrong: the culture wars are nowhere near over. We face ugly fights about more -isms and phobias, and today, here in Texas, where candidates lost because of those things, I see the long, hard road ahead.

There's a bright shining star on the top of the Christmas tree called the United States, and oh how beautiful that is. How amazing so many new people saw the light, and we are all inspired by it.

But below, the tree has broken and crooked branches still.

As the president of our local Democrat chapter wisely yet cynically said last night, as we all stood in shock and dismay watching our candidates fall one by one, "Texas? Is still Texas."

And Texas is not alone.

Sweet words of insight and hope. I'm so glad I don't have to move to Canada.

Great and scary is right. I'm excited and elated, but a little worried about how we accomplish all that needs to be accomplished.

But the breeze of change and possibility feels good.

Miz Liz

Wow. Thank you!
