And, of course, a reminder of what tomorrow will be...

The beginning of something new. And, as we look back and we remember what it was like to watch *that guy* become the President-Elect of the United States, there is a sense that tomorrow, tomorrow, when he takes the oath of office, it will be a moment unlike any other. With his eloquence, his passion for justice, his determination to create change, and the very fact that he made Americans feel as if they had a chance to fix their country, Obama inspired tears of joy and great bellows of relief when he won the election. What he will do with the presidency, no one can really say. I'm sure he will make mistakes, disappoint us, not be the *magic* that we all think we need. But, he has already given the nation a great gift, a renewed sense of our own power for good and decency. Whatever he does next? The people of America need to take ownership of as well because it was the groundswell of support that put him in office, but it will be the hard work and strenuous labour of the entire country that will make America feel better about itself and its future. We cannot rely on one man, however powerful, to lead in isolation. If this election has taught America anything, it is that taking responsibility for your future can create great change and a powerful sense of self--something that we had lost during the past years. Tomorrow, there will be a new beginning.

And, for the first time in a long while, I cannot wait to see what will happen next.
