Today I could hold my head up high.
Proud that my fellow Americans made the right choice. Happy that there is hope in the air.
Finally, after eight long, excruciating, embarrassing years, a person who deserves to be President.
There was no apologizing to our neighbors this time around. Unlike the last election, when we were asked over and over again, "Why would the American people re-elect such a horrible President?"
We would sadly shake our heads and tell them that we couldn't understand it either.
I walked to the épicerie this morning and had several neighbors congratulate me on the outcome of the election. Like me, they were all smiling and happy.
I think the world breathed a collective sigh of relief last night.
