I was waiting for the bus, headed to work, when Jud sent me the text telling that Obama had won. I was wriggling with such excitement that I could barely contain myself. I looked up and half expected everyone to be jumping up and down, celebrating too. But I was alone, amidst a crowd of people going about their day as if nothing epic had just happened. Didn’t they realize that history had just been made and for the better? That’s alright, years from now, at least I’ll remember that moment forever.
Thank you, America, for pulling through.
