It's nearly 11 p.m. The race is nearly over. I'm so hopeful and buoyed right now.
Voting today was one of the best experiences of my life. Each year since I moved to CT, Neal and I have gone together to vote. We didn't have to wait on line (probably because I brought plenty to do on line). I studied the ballot for a few minutes and carefully colored in the circles. I teared up as I filled in the circle for Obama/Biden. As we walked out the door after depositing our ballots, I broke into tears.
I can't believe that there is finally a chance for hope, for change, for pride after so long. Cynicism has reigned for years, but if CNN is right, then I believe we're in for a new era of unification and renewal.
God bless America.
