Thank You, America
I want to thank America for restoring my faith in humanity and electing a man of intelligence and integrity to the Presidency of the United States last night. (Alex, above, thanks you, too.) The fact that he is a man of color just adds to the magic of this moment, perhaps the first time that our country has ever truly transcended the petty cruelty of racism. This is just the beginning of the beginning of a new era, but the idea that a new day is dawning on our country after the long night of the past eight years makes me excited about the future and proud of my country.
