History in the Making

Did you vote today? I sure did! And I'm pleased to watch the election unfold on CNN because I like the results this far! I feel a great sense of pride in knowing that I can say that I voted for the first black president in the United States of America. My children and grandchildren will read about this day, and I will be able to tell them that I was a part of that movement. How exciting!

On a side note, I've had some very frustrating conversations with certain conservatives in my life over the past few months who've accused me of being unpatriotic (among other things) for not supporting (which really means not liking) our current president. I wonder... would it be entirely too childish of me to throw that same line back into their faces after Obama takes office? :)
