An Historic Day
Yesterday, we made history. I said this to my friends today, my voice betraying me by cracking as I looked them too deep in the eyes. I wanted to share the joy. But last night as I heard the news, I didn't yell with joy - I bit my lip. I thought "I will have to hope again." I felt confused, disbelieving. It was like Peace had won. Peace never wins. I could feel the breathless hope and promise of the moment. Although we can and do move forward as a people and evolve, I feel a separate hope has been set aside, protected, just in case. This is the hope that equals the full potential of mankind. We are capable of so much more. Go out and be leaders my friends. Hope with all your heart for change.
