Election Night 2

"And I have been to the mountain top.. and I have seen the promised land.. And I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we, as a people, will get to the promised land" MLK 3rd April 1968

I'm just listening to Barack Obama's victory speech. And there is a sense of fulfillment, the US has bravely stepped forward and for whatever reasons has voted in Barack Obama.

I'm a little bit moved. It feels awfully significant and at the same time very mundane.

Will write more when I am less tired.
