In 2008, I blogged about watching Barack Obama win the presidential election and wrote that one thought ran through my mind: “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” (It’s a quote from the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and it sure felt apt.)
Last night, I felt that same pure, unbridled sense of joy, and that same quote came back to me again. I can’t even tell you how proud, relieved and happy I feel this morning. Those tears of joy, they sure are sweet.
We did it.
