I voted first thing yesterday morning. I always vote. The first thing I did when I moved to California was register to vote. I love jury duty, too. I'm weird that way :-)
After I voted, as I was walking to my car, for the first time I felt that I had accomplished something in that booth. I felt like I was voting for something that really mattered.
And last night, as David and Zach and I were watching the news, it was just so very exciting! Watching my 13-year old son get so wrapped up in it--to the point that, in the heat of the moment, he started his own Politics4Kids ning site, I was just so proud! Of my fellow citizens, of my family, of Obama...
I woke up this morning with a lightness of being about the future that I don't ever remember feeling as regards politics.
