Anti-Riots in the Street

About an hour ago, a small crowd of people ran down our sidewalk whooping and cheering. We went outside with beers in hand to join the celebration, and after they passed, we could hear cheers coming from houses down the street. The neighbors raised their bottles and cigarettes and victorious fists. Cars honked at our little group as they drove by. And we all teared up a little watching Obama's speech.

This feels good.

I can't look at that pretty map with all of the sparkling blue states enough! It's thrilling!

I'm still stunned. But so, so happy. It must have been fun to join in the celebration. -
