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

Oh thank goodness it's not just me randomly tearing up. (Hell, I'm doing it right now.)

Relly is, too. This is just such a momentous time in history! It's a win for hope, and peace, and common sense...

I spent my entire day at work randomly crying. They played the speech on the radio? Crying. Someone said "yes we can" in conversation? Crying.

I'm Canadian.

Still crying.

Well, it's a fucking AMAZING and inspirational milestone.

Besides, now you don't have to worry about an invasion from the south anymore.

I know I'm incredibly excited to see what's to come.
