So, just for today, on the evening of this historic election, I'll record my thoughts for posterity.
Yes, I do believe that we are witnessing history. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have A Dream" speech what, 45 years ago? And here, tonight, we've elected our first president of color. My voter registration card does not say Democrat, and it does not say Republican. It actually reads "No Party Affiliation" because I do not choose to place a label on myself as far as my politics are concerned. Just like in other areas of my life, I don't think things are so black and white. I prefer to take things case by case and make my choices in that manner, without having those labels there to use as a crutch in times of indecision.
I voted for Barack Obama. I'm happy that he won the election. I have to say though, that I am afraid for him. There are a lot of bad people out there, and a lot of flipping crazies that help to make up this country. You have to admire a man who wants to make a change in our country, even if it means going through each day knowing that there are people out there who hate you enough to want to hurt you. I couldn't do it.
I'm interested to see what happens in the next four years with this country.
In other news - okay not news - but here is a new baby picture!
He may LOOK like he's getting his groove on, but really, he was sorta pissed at me that I set him down to take his picture. He's started this fun new game where he won't sleep longer than 15 minutes during the day unless he's being held. We're gonna have to nip this crap in the bud, because his mama's butt is TIRED.
