Fireworks

The Empress Casino actually shot fireworks when OBama was giving his speech. And we are over 45 miles from where he was speaking. There was actually cheering in the streets. No matter the outcome, it's nice hearing people genuinely excited about the results of a presidential race again.

I watched Tv until 2am and was amazed at all the people crying and hugging and celebrating in the streets in an orderly manner. Such excitement! I've never seen anything like it.

I don't know that the best person won but I'm very happy to see people from diverse backgrounds hopeful about the possibilities.

That was the amazing part ... I think that for a few minutes the ethnic labels disappeared and everyone was Americans. I wish that spirit would continue.

I was in the streets celebrating (in NC). It was unreal from that perspective too.

I'm glad you wrote this ... I live in a small German ethnic town. Be glad you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren about being part of that awesome celebration.
