Morning In America

I'm still processing it all, and let me tell you what an incredibly powerful experience it was today, to be in a public school while this historic moment unfolds. The staff here were amazing, the students were engaged and excited, and I found myself crying at one point, watching President-elect Obama's speech again.

I said to my buddy Peter, who teaches social studies, when I was in his classroom for a bit today, watching Obama's and McCain's speeches again, and I asked him, was this the kind of day that you love being a social studies teacher, or do you even know where to begin. He said, both, and that's what I'm teaching them.

I have never been prouder to be an American. The great promise of our nation is returning to its full strength. Welcome to the dawning of a new day in our country.

    "So I walk like I'm on a mission, 'cuz that's the way I groove. I've got more and more to do, I've got less and less to prove. It took me too long to realize that I don't take good pictures 'cuz I have the kind of beauty that moves..." Ani D.
