We did it.

And it's a wonderful, hopeful day for America. I believe that after 8 looong years, we are finally on the right track.

And it heartens me to know that a fundamentalist, intolerant "Christian", hateful, fearful America is NOT the real, true America. They may be loud, but they aren't the majority. (And the Christian is in quotes because a loud, vocal segment of those folks proclaim as hotly as they can that they are followers of what Jesus taught,that they are the only true Christians: but in practice, in their actions.....not so much.) Where's the tolerance, love, peace, the hope for equality, for ALL of our brothers and sisters? Stinginess, exclusion, hate, that their idea of Christianity? How can that be justified? Is that really what they think Jesus was all about? In their heart of hearts, do they truly believe they are following Jesus' example?

--Let me be clear that I'm not saying that if you didn't vote for Obama, it automatically makes you any of the stuff above. I know people, am friends with people, who had legitimate policy issues and that's why they voted for McCain. My comments are about a specific subset of "Christians" who have done, said, and posted some of the most vile, hateful things I've seen in a long time. And now I'm done talking about that, because it isn't healthy, and it isn't the way our President Elect would want us to behave. --

Onward. Onward and upward. Tomorrow is waiting.
