A Huge Wave of Emotions....

It's been nearly 4 days since we heard the results for the Presidential Elections 2008... and I am only just experiencing emotions. I teeter between Pure Excitement & Extreme Caution. Logically nothing has changed.. or so I thought: I still have bills to pay, crime is still in the world, my kids are still annoying.... but then I got a thought.... "Hey! This is a major moment in victory.. It's a major moment in history" This is a great moment for ALL people... but it will also take time to see a difference.... or so I thought.

Whatever the circumstances are.... I am overcome with gladness. The steps my ancestors built for free.. The steps they toiled over.. the very steps that were a reminder of past oppression is now a more inclusive symbol of victory.

I just want to be able to enjoy this moment in time without the bickering.. without the fear tactics... without oversimplification, explanations, indignation, retaliation, rationalization and without ridiculously high expectations. I want to live in the moment and feel free to express my emotions... un-judged, and uncategorized. So please don't hinder my joys or my tears my tears...

Please don't slap me with projections of what is to come... Just let me be. Give me this time to celebrate. Life goes on... and it always will! But just for this moment... Just for this point in time ~ I will stand still and be glad.
