I’m basically having a nervous breakdown.
I intend to stay up all night tonight… no way I can sleep with all the excitement of the election all around me.
Good thing I took tomorrow off… by the time this is over, it will have been a helluva long day.
I was at the polls, ready to vote at 5:45 this morning.
After waiting about an hour, I cast my ballot.
As I was leaving the church, my designated polling place, I cried.
I voted for a black man today, and millions of my fellow Americans have- and will- do the same.
We are making history.
When I tell my two beautiful black-women-in-training that for them the sky is the limit…
… I can do so while looking them in the eye, knowing I am telling the truth.
This is what makes my country great.
