When I tell yall, I could not fall asleep last night, I think I was not the only one either. You remember when you were a kid and you had asked for something for Christmas or your Birthday, and you could not absolutely wait for that day to get there and the night before was even worse because it would drag out in what seemed like an eternity? Well that was the kind of night that I had last night. Today's election was years in the making, and all I can say is, I was overwhelmed by the lines that formed as early as 5 this morning, so everyone could get in and cast their vote. Now you already know I checked my man Barack Obama and cannot wait for this day and this election to be over. I feel like that gift that I have been wanting for so long, is for him to take the mantle as our next President of these United States and make some much needed changes. On the other hand, if that other candidate wins the election, it will be a very dissapointing feeling resonating thru my body like a kid that asked for something spectacular for one of his gifts, only to get socks! It will SUCK!!!!
But, I, like so many others are very hopeful that today will be a history making event like no other has seen. It wasn't long ago that people were out on the field dying for the rights to vote, so I was happy to see many walks of life standing right there in the line this morning, old and young, black and white, etc. The last eight years have been a very trying and difficult time for a lot of us and we are ready for some new and approved leadership to take the reins. Obama will have to clean up a lot of disastrous decisions that have taken place, I just pray that people give him that chance, and we as a people don't start tearing him down as we have built him up.
The world is changing, and I hope to be celebrating tonight rather than mourning. But either way you know I'll have something to say about it.
Peace and No matter what, please have a safe Election day and night.
