We're almost there, three days until the first election results start to come in. When I came home from dinner last night an old friend from high school had sent me an uplifting email sharing that Barack Obama was speaking that evening, at that moment, less than 2 miles away from where we grew up. It was the first I heard that he would be speaking in a park that I know so well.
History in the making is how she put it!
What inspiring, uniting moments I've had with friends and strangers over the past many months since Senator Obama announced his candidacy. I was grateful that my friend shared this with me, and we could revel in this moment together. She would have done the same if my favorite performer was appearing in a neighborhood park near my childhood home, if she liked their music or not. On this one, we're singing the same tune. I hope we're singing it on November 5th, it sounds a lot like "Oh Happy Day". Oh let it be!
VOTE November 4th - OBAMA/BIDEN '08
