Time is moving in slow motion
I just turned on MSNBC to start watching election coverage, even though none of the polls will close for more than two more hours. I have already teared up several times today- whenever I hear an interview with an African American voter, saying that they thought they would never see this day. (me neither!) Maybe it feels even more personal because of my own family- that someone with the same ethnic background as my daughter could become president. That my husband just voted in his first U.S. election. I am hopeful, but terrified at the same time. I anticipate more tears tonight- hopefully tears of joy.
