I swear I could feel it when I was walking to the post office today. Everything made me smile and I even found myself tearing up a little as India.Arie's song Wonderful started playing on my iPod.
I haven't felt this proud or happy to be living in the USA... ever. The last time I can remember the red, white and blue proudly displayed by the collective nation was post September 11. And we all know that was for a different reason.
This is what the country and the world needs. Change for the better, optimism and a leader that we believe in. I'll probably get a lot of crap for this, but with Bush I feel like his failures were partly (a very small part) because we didn't believe in him. If we don't trust someone and think he's always going to suck, how are they supposed to trust us and be our leader?
It's all those messages we send out into the universe coming right back to us.
"Yes We Can." Yes We Did. Now let's CHANGE the world.
