I hope my Chicago friends are in Grant park tonight … I know if I was still in Chicago I would be there!
I was voter 2085 at 6.45 in our hood tonight. There was free sandwiches, cookies and water — a first! Morella went with us, of course and I took a photo of her and I beside the poll sign. When we walked in one of the bake sale (it was held at a school) said “Her first election!” After we voted, I corrected him and said it was her second voting experience because we were there for the primary. Yes, Tim and I vote every single time we can — it is a duty that I have already mentioned, I will not take for granted.
Oh … here is Barak now giving his speech! I feel like I could cry. I am so proud that my daugther lives in an age where a minority can become President of the United States of America.
