I Am Proud

To paraphrase Michelle Obama’s controversial quote, “Today I am proud of my country”. I am proud, not just because we have elected the first black president and put the prejudices of just a generation ago behind us. I am proud of the American voter that questioned the lies and fear tactics of the far right. I am proud because we have elected a true leader, the likes of which we haven’t seen since Kennedy, a leader who will restore America’s reputation in the court of world opinion. I am proud to be an American.

The Constitution states ” We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union…” Yesterdays election made this union more perfect.

Yes we can!
