Emotional

8:39 a.m.



I'm watching election coverage. Barack Obama is casting his vote. I find myself tearing up. Please Please please let him win.



They said his grandmother voted absentee ballot before she passed.



I'm hoping her death is a good omen - Imagine the history stories "Barack Obama's grandmother - who raised him - died the day before he was elected President of the United States of America"



Alex called last night. He wanted his dad to take him to the polls. He voted in his first election ever!



I'm off to vote! Make sure you do, too!

I was looking at photos of people around the world when they heard that Obama has won. Just looking at the expressions on their faces touched a heartstring and I teared up too!

For me, it's not a sense of victory, it's a sense of relief and pride.
