change

I can't really put into words how relieved I am with the results of the election. To be honest, I'm still a little numb.

At 11pm last night, watching a hoarse Jim Lehrer on PBS, we learned that California had gone to Obama and that therefore the election was being called in his favor. Almost immediately the screaming started, sounds of celebration from our neighbors. I opened the window and leaned out, watching cars honk at small groups of revelers. It was eerily like New Year's Eve, along with firecrackers and what might have been gunshots.

I don't have any photos. To be honest there wasn't much to see where we live; it was all auditory. But in Fort Greene, a neighborhood not far from us, the streets apparently filled with celebrants. Check out the photos on this blog. I especially like the one of people mobbing the bus.

I just found this video too, from Raulism on YouTube... Dare I compare this with the Phillies winning the World Series? Two miracles in two weeks? What can possibly come next?
