Get Out and Vote

Today is the day, November 4th. If you have not done so there is still time depending on where you live. Get out to the polls and exercise your civic duty. Tonight I have invited my mom over and the family and I will eat wings and watch CNN.

Today I Cried

Today I'm having a moment. I called all my friends and no one was available so I had to write about it. Yesterday I wrote The Depravity Of Slavery and today I went out and voted for Barack Obama. It was a very heavy moment. Reflecting on all that African Americans have endured here in the U.S. makes this election even more amazing. As I stood in line waiting to cast my vote, I experienced so many things. I felt the need to shout, laugh, discuss, cry the ugly cry, but mostly I just wanted to connect with someone. I wanted to get a sense of how others were feeling as they stood in line with me. Were they feeling overcome with emotions as well or was it just me by my lonesome? I would like to get a sense of how you out there are feeling.
