Loss For Words

Last night was one of the most amazing things I have ever watched. Really. We were all witness to history. We will talk about that night with our grandchildren. Both Bryan and I cried. Me? I bawled. Twice.

And this morning, I am at a loss for words for the euphoria, hope and wonder I feel.

So, I will let our new president speak for me.

I am so proud of my country today.

    I bawled too. In fact I’m still crying.. I’m so proud of my country this morning.

    I was hanging on every one of his words. So strong, so purposeful, so full of both realism and hope (loved the “maybe not in one year or even one term” line). My Swiss in-laws and friends are sending me emails of congratulation for being a smart American. I never thought about it that way.

    Couldn’t agree with you more…
    (I loved watching your Twitter last night on Facebook!)

    I was weeping but when they showed Jesse Jackson crying, I lost it.

    So proud of this country. FINALLY!

    I am so with you! I also cried twice last night and then a little more today. I am so proud to be an American right now!

    Congratulations from South Africa! Finally, there seems to be hope and redemption in your future. I cried like a baby when I watched his speech, and I’m not even American 🙂

    I totally would hug all of the folks in the blogosphere today. Most of us are breathing a collective sigh of relief!

    I just watched the speech. I was working that night surrounded by people who voted differently. This speech encompassed everything I couldn’t express to those individuals that night. Hopefully they will open their hearts to the embodiment of that speech. We are separate individuals, but we have the power to unite and be whole again.
    Thank you America!
