yes we did

During the past four days...

I knocked on doors in Virginia to help Senator Obama win that state in the 2008 Election.

I walked over 2 miles in the pitch black dark to a remote fairground with 90,000 others to hear his final campaign speech.

I celebrated in a bar full of democrats when he won state after state after state - including my own beloved Florida.

I was hugged by an enormous 7 foot tall bouncer when the announcement was made that Barack Obama was elected the 44th president of these United States.

I hugged and high-fived and chanted with strangers outside the White House.

I sang 'Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye' down the street while hundreds of car horns blared in the city streets.

And I did it. I finally found my self in a total sum of awe.

Where are you? You've posted nothing new in awhile and you are missed. :(

Are you busy planning a huge, festive birthday gala?
