For the first time ever, I felt emotional, engaged, involved in an election. There were tears in my eyes when Obama gave his acceptance speech, something that has NEVER happened to me before. But the sense of victory is tempered by the fact that Prop 8 passed here in California. Under this bogus proposition, gay marriages are declared once again illegal. *sigh*
We have a road yet to travel as long as any of us continue to be disenfranchised and disrespected. I guess few victories are unambiguous. To all our friends who were dissed in this election, we stand with you. Change is here and will keep on coming. The tsunami of history is on your side.
