  •  I can't tell you how MOVED (2+ / 0-)

    I am that we were all a part of this.

    I'm moved. I'm MOVED. I'm no punk, but LORD I'm crying (and drinking and smoking).

    The funny thing is, my son is 14. He's growing up in Northern VA, and he appreciates that Barack Obama is our President-Elect (GOD THAT SOUNDS GOOD), but he doesn't understand how historical it is because he doesn't experience the racism that I did growing up and even now.

    I think it makes me happy that he doesn't understand. It's a testament to what our country has become.

    I still cried and hugged him anyway.

    Its Crunch Time Baby!! Time for some PTPers!!
