How could you not have tears in your eyes

I had tears streaming down my face last night as Barack Obama finished his speech. I remember seeing Dr. King’s speech forty years ago and having the same reaction. I am prouder to be an American right now than I have been for the past eight horrible years under The (OH-MY-GOD-THE-MAN-REALLY-IS-THAT-DUMB) Decider.  I am truly thrilled that I lived long enough to see this day happen. I hope to live at least eight more years and see a woman take her rightful place on that podium when Obama finishes what will surely be his eight years in office.
