I am listening to our President-elect speak right now, and I have never, ever, not once in my life, been so proud to be a part of something bigger than myself. These people in Grant Park -- they are America the Beautiful. I am one of them. "This is our moment. This is our time." Yes we can. And we did. And we will.
(And later I will post some of the batshit crazy text messages I shared with my sister while we were waiting for the results. But not now, because I am crying. I am going to go grab my daughter and hold her and tell her that she can be anything she wants to be, and it will be the God's honest truth. Yes we can, baby girl. Yes we can.)
