Election night celebration

Look who showed up at our election night celebration... why, none other than President-Elect Barack Obama!
How kind of him to drop by!
On a serious note, obviously I am excited to have Barack Obama as our new President. I just watched Senator McCain's speech and he was so gracious and very well spoken. I am glad that I live in a country where we have the freedom to have a voice and to be heard. No matter what anyone's political views are, I am proud that Americans came out in record numbers this year. I am looking forward to and praying for unity!

Missy: You put it so well. It is also amazing that we can have a peaceful transition of power every 4-8 years in this great democracy.

It is a great night to be an American!!

Although it wasn't the outcome I'd hoped for I am so happy to see them both speak so eloquently and hope we can all come together as a country : )
