It's a BEAUTIFUL DAY
Fear just struck out, and the world's somehow a little more beautiful today.
I'm still absorbing it all, drinking it all in.
Leave your thoughts.
Ok, there's so much to write, I'm not sure I could get it all in, so I'll do a shorthand version.
First I wanted to note that John McCain's concession speech was without a doubt the most gracious and responsible, even moving, consession speeches I've ever heard.
He not only displayed great humility, but proved that he has the wisdom to realize that, after spending months whipping it up, his responsibility now was to tell the angry and misinformed minions they'd so crudely mislead that in essense, it was all bullshit, and that they should support and give Obama the respect he's due and, as people who supposedly love America more than anyone else, they need to drop all the over-blown fear and anger McCain's campaign had worked so hard to instill, and instead be magnanimous and lend support to the countries next leader in perilous times.
McCain, after having his hour of a campaign, on the 59th second of the 59th minute, FINALLY stepped forward to try to dampen the ugliness his campaign has created, an ugliness that even he realizes poses a real threat to solving the many problems the country faces.
