Obama Victory Party in Berkeley, CA



This is not a political blog, but this victory means a lot to me and to our family. May Quinn and all of our children grow up in a better world under Barack Obama's leadership. Yes, we did! Yes, we can!

That is a beautiful thing. I would hope that no matter where one falls on the political spectrum that people can see the beauty of what happened last night. I have never in my life seen spontaneous celebrations errupt in the streets over an election.

People were engaged! People feel hopeful and celebratory and given the challenges we're facing as a country that has to be seen as a good thing.

WOW! That was awsome, I thought our little party was celebrating with about 50 people, but that was huge, I couldn;t tell where it was from the store fronts, was it on Shattuck?

Sadly, we weren't there. Someone else posted this to You Tube and it filled me with joy to see it. You can actually see people dancing in the streets literally all around the world on the little You Tube videos - truly amazing. We couldn't get a babysitter that night and I was sick anyway. : ( But we celebrated at home and went out to a really nice dinner the next night. I think we might go to the inauguration since we couldn't really celebrate on election night.
