I have sat down and walked away from the laptop several times, debating on whether to write this or not. I've finally decided to get it off my chest so I can move on with my day.
I am full of mixed emotions today. I am so incredibly happy and proud of America for electing an African American president. I can't even really wrap my brain around what an amazing thing this is. It is HUGE! (HUGE! HUGE! HUGE! infinity!) I do not think a person should be judged, persecuted, or for that matter promoted based on the color of their skin or gender.
I am a very liberal American, but I do not identify with either party. Nor totally agree with either candidate. I feel like this election was a choice of the lesser of two evils. I wish I had registered to vote here in time to be eligible to vote this election. I may be a liberal American but I do not think the right man got the job. I hope with all my heart I am wrong.
Both men gave great speeches last nite. McCain gave the most gracious speech I think I've ever heard. Bravo to them both for taking the high road last nite.
But I still can't be 100% happy that America elected a president who won't salute the American Flag and pay respect to all the brave people who have died to defend it.
And since I didn't register in time to vote, I guess that old rule applies to me:
If you didn't vote you don't get to complain. So I'll move along now. :)
