Over the moon

November 7, 2008

It seemed impossible just 10 years ago that a Black American could win the presidency, but that’s exactly what happened earlier this week. I cannot describe the feeling. I imagine that it’s what people felt when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon — incredible; awesome; transcendent — except better.

Just saw these photos today of our President Elect today (thanks, Robyn, for pointing them out!). They’re wonderful. Makes you realize that we not only changed the course of history, but we elected someone who is thoroughly down-to-earth and real. It really gives me hope.

    He’s definitely very good at making himself ‘available’ to people.
    You know he has a flickr account too right?

    Spot-on, I feel confident for the first time in awhile. I love the pictures!
