I woke up before 6 a.m. to head to the polls and cast my vote. I had only voted for President of the United States twice before, and both times, I voted for someone that did not win the election. I was beginning to wonder if a vote from me was the kiss of death for a presidential candidate.
Tonight, however, it would seems as if my luck has changed. Tonight, the person that I waited for more than two hours to cast my vote for, was named President Elect of the United States of America. Unfortunately I’m not sharing this historical moment with my husband in person. Instead, I’m sitting in a hotel room in Madison, Wisconsin, listening to cheers from what I assume to be happy students from the nearby college campus. I am overcome with emotion – pride, hope, relief, joy…tomorrow is a new day.
Yes we can.
