tears of joy

I can't seem to stop crying, I've been watching videos on CNN all morning and afternoon, video after video of people all over the world celebrating--riotously celebrating--Obama.  How amazing, how totally awesome is it, that the whole world loves this man?  That the whole world is rejoicing in his election?  When has this *EVER* happened before?  People are not normally concerned with other countries' elections, they'll find out during the week who won and okay, so things probably continue as they did before.  But this time, people were glued to the news, holding their breaths, counting state by state (again, not just Americans--all over the world!) screaming and jumping and yelling and blowing whistles and crying and hugging and signing when they found out he won.  He inspires the world to be better and I think, just like the American Revolution sparked revolutions around the world, bringing down kings and installing democracies, Obama will spread change, cooperation, and righteousness around the globe.  He has energized and brought hope to the human race.  I am proud to be an American again.

...and just becasue it's fun, Obama dances on Ellen!  two of my favorite people!
