First of all: I've realized that 90% of my icons aren't ever appropriate for what I want to say. Gotta fix that, but I'm lazy. But that's besides the point.
It's been forever since I said the Pledge of Allegiance. It's been a hell of a lot longer since I meant it. It's been ages since I heard the national anthem without being a little disgusted, and longer since I sang along. Last week, when Obama was here in Pittsburgh, I did both. The man has made me believe in America again, and I wasn't sure that was possible.
I kept tearing up last night, and randomly throughout the day today. It's... It really is the dawn of a new era in the world, and I can't wait to see what the next eight years bring.
Yes we can. Yes we will. Yes we did.
The one thing that I think got me the most last night was a sign that I saw someone holding, for only just a moment:
WE HAVE OVERCOME
- Bandwagon and stuff
