History Will Be Made Tomorrow

Barack Obama: A mosaic of peopleImage by tsevis via FlickrImage by tsevis via FlickrTomorrow I will be at the poll all day doing my civic duty. I have to be there at 5:30AM and will not be able to leave until the poll is shut down at 7:30PM (Eastern). So, I will not get to watch the early returns and probably by the next time I post to my blog, we'll have a new President-elect.

History will be made one way or the other. Either we'll have the first African American in the White House or the first woman. I am so glad to be living at this time and to be sharing this experience with all of you. To those of you sick of my raving about Barack Obama, I thank you for your patience. I wish I could have convinced more of you to take part in the election of a man who will go down in history (one way or another should he win). But, you've got your reasons for making the choice you made and I respect your decisions.  No matter who wins, I pray that our country comes together on Wednesday morning in a new spirit of peace and cooperation and that we can begin to heal from the divisions that have become so deep among us.
