Tears in my eyes

(Source: Yahoo!)
This picture just brings tears to my eyes. I never thought that I would live to see a black man become president, and yet it now appears certain that I was wrong. Thank you, United States, for showing me that there is hope yet that my birthplace can overcome our faults. Even as I type, I'm hearing fireworks in either Arlington or DC, shouting outside and horns blaring. People are excited about politics again, and I'm thrilled. Now Obama just needs to be one tenth the president he promised.
