Literary Election


This is a new era in more ways than one. Trust me, this time in history will be written about and written about and written about over and over and over again. Whole books will be spawned from this momentous day!

Truly beautiful, this open letter.
Thank you for posting.
I agree with Prince. Having an African American president-elect is encouraging people of color all over the world!

What a gorgeous first family. I'm enjoying this honeymoon period when Barack Obama is still Mr. Hope and hasn't yet proved to be a fallible human who makes compromises for political reasons. Even then, though, I suspect I'll still like him more than I've liked any other president in my lifetime.

Such a beautiful day. I am absolutely overwhelmed. I wore my shades all day because my eyes are so swollen from crying. What a beautiful, wondrous moment!
