i could have been a bit more prepared at last night's party. wearing a button, a little red, white and blue, or even an old election hat. i'll be better suited next time.
but, regardless of attire, i was surrounded by some pretty amazing people, each one celebrating as our country elected the next president.
and now, looking at pictures in the times, and even the news & observer, i'm moved by the number of tears, open mouths, pairs of hands stretched to the sky, and people embracing each other as the country embraces change.
