I feel so happy!

Yep, I am one of the many American people who feels SO HAPPY about Barack Obama winning the recent election. I am particularly happy that there wasn't confusion about the ballots, no hanging chads or other annoying hang ups. It was a landslide. I love that! I have felt like I want to write a song, or a poem about this historical time. . . so here it goes.

Thank you, America.
For voting for Obama.
For judging a man "not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character".
Thank you, America.
For your excitement.
For your enthusiasm.
For your genuine desire to elect a new leader like no other.
I never thought that in my lifetime I would witness something so historical.
Children of our country, have confidence.
You can be anything you want to be.
Grandparents of our country, have confidence.
You can trust us to keep the American Dream alive.

I particularly like the last part about Grandparents. Be sure you send this to your Grandparents! I know Grandma Miriam would be happy to hear that you are carrying her values forward... She knows you do, but...

Love, Auntie
