I am SO PROUD to be AMERICAN today!!! I am hopeful for the enormous changes that must come for our country. It was fun this morning to read all my friends' statuses on facebook, which were all happy and proud and hopeful, for the first time in sooo long! Though I must say, I am disappointed with California for passing Prop 8. I don't understand it. Oh well, I did my part and voted no. Maybe sometime soon this will change, too. In the mean time, at least we will have strong and good national leadership for the first time in 8 years!
