I am honestly in shock by what happened yesterday. This nation, with a record voter turnout, elected an African American President into office the same day California banned gay marriages. I feel incredibly lucky, not to mention hopeful for the future, that Obama is our new President Elect, but in the back of my mind I feel that there is still work to be done for our nation to really live together harmoniously. Like I said, 2 steps forward, 1 step back.
Oh yeah, and the girls are getting a puppy... how wonderful is that? :-)
