Can I tell you all a secret? Can I?
I have not been a proud American for a very long time. If I could have picked up and moved my family overseas, or even north to Canada, I would have. I was embarrassed of my country, of what a laughing stock we had become because of George W. Bush. I was appalled that our nation had allowed this man the right to ruin our greatness.
But last night, watching Obama win, my pride came back. Listening to his vision, hearing his conviction that we will be great again, that YES WE CAN unite and stand together as a nation. I was moved.
I believed him. I believe he believes in what he says, and I believe he has what it takes to get things done.
To believe what the most powerful man in our country has to say is an awesome thing.
