Pride by MAFmove (free downloadable poster from Design for Obama found via More Ways to Waste Time.)

As wonderful as my trip to Washington was, the highlight had to be realizing that it had really happened.  That I can be proud of my president.  I am excited to know that our country can grow and our options are a tiny bit wider.  And I start to wonder at this feeling of respect and downright giddiness.  Has my generation ever had that?

It is the distinct feeling of a tiny speck of political cynicism cracking.

    Personally, it was the first time I’d truly believed in one of our presidential candidates. It’s a wonderful feeling!

    I love the word everyone’s been bandying about: meritocracy

    I found your blog from searching for reclaimed stationery (I’ll comment on that post in a minute), but I saw this and had to share my joy with you! I’m so glad you were in my city for this election; I had been lamenting that I was not working on the campaign (I had worked in Florida on the Kerry campaign in ’04), but the pure joy and exhilaration that spilled out into the streets of DC last week made it so worth it to be home for this one. We ran straight to the White House around 11, when there were only a few hundred people there, but it soon turned to thousands as GWU kids came over after the speech, and it was just so awesome to be part of it. I’m glad you had such a memorable trip!
