A Moment for the Real...

Many things happen in a lifetime on a personal level…birth, deaths, marriages, divorces. And then there are things that happen on a global level. Historic events that will be remembered and taught long after we’re gone, for generations to come.

Last night, November 4, 2008, the election for the 44th President of the United States was one of those moments.

Whether you were for Obama or against, whether you are Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative, male or female, living here or abroad, history was made. History for all of us.

I have never been so proud of my country as I was last night. We triumphed over fear, prejudice, stereotypes, bias, and ignorance.

I remember the first American on the moon, the day the Berlin wall fell, the day the Towers fell, and so many more things that will never be forgotten.

Yesterday will never be forgotten.

I couldn't agree more.

I remember when LBJ died, I was very very young but recall watching his funeral on TV.

The Space Shuttle exploding... Twice!!

But this, by far, makes me the proudest!! I am so glad I won't have to choose one of Bill Maher's "Exit Strategies"!
