Yes we can. And I did.

Super Tuesday 

I shed tears on my way to work today.  I thought about the magnitude of this election.  I thought of the sacrifices made for me so that this day could be possible-a day when a woman and a Black man are viable candidates for the American presidency.  I thought about the people who saw the importance of this day.  I thought about both campaigns, their differences.  I thought about the hope that was taken away from us in 2000 and the hope that’s being promised for 2008.  I thought and I cried.  I smiled and I gave thanks. 

I wished my grandparents could have seen this.

I thought about those things today, too. Although I fear that I will never be able to cast my vote for the first Black president, I am so proud to be living in a world at a time when this could happen. Hmmmm….I TRULY wished that I could have voted today.
