History is Made . . .

It's just after 11 pm here in New York. I was going to go to bed early -- didn't think I could stand to watch the election returns. . . But I got pulled in -- and I'm glad I did. Times Square looks like it does on New Years Eve. . . Jesse Jackson is in tears. . . My daughter won't be moving to Canada . . .

Seriously, though. Barack Obama's election is a remarkable event. The only thing that can top it is a woman in the White House. That's next.

Another Obama fan who is ecstatic as well! I thought his speech was awesome....still about our country, not about himself. A lesson we can all learn from and be inspired by.

Not Times Square -- Grant Park in Chicago, IL!

Yes, Time's Square -- and the Apollo Theater in Harlem, Greenpoint in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Ebenezer Church in Georgia -- Obama may have been in Grant Park, but the celebrations were everywhere!
