I have heard several people say that they teared up when voting. This has been a very emotional election for many people. Just the fact of woman and a black candidate to begin with. I too am moved, though I’ve mostly been not thinking about it.
Early this morning one of my dearest friends gave birth to twin boys and I thought, oh my! what if these boys came into the world the day the US elected a black president? And then I cried my eyes out. Indeed tears started rolling down my face just typing that up. The future of all our generations is at stake here (as it is in every election) and the confluence of possibilities is feeling quite overwhelming right now.
