Where were you?

It was spoken often that today will be a day that people will speak of for years to come. A day spoken of with phrases such as, “where were you on that historic day?” yes, it is historic that we have elected the 1st black president, and that’s the last I intend to ever mention that aspect of his presidency. It should not be mentioned or used at all. There is a long road to January 20th, and these next few months will lay the groundwork for what has been touted as a presidency for change. It is may hope that it will be that change that defines the look back on history

Where was I? I was at the pub with friends watching the election results on a big screen tv.

Where were you?

  1. Where was I? I was in a small office at work assembling gage pins when a very trusted coworker of whom I had confided earlier about who I voted for(I rarely if ever discus politics), stepped into the office to inform me that he thinks I voted for a winner.

  2. I was at home, watching the returns while working on some cardweaving, and texting a friend who wasn’t near a television.

  3. I missed most of the evening because I was in class, discussing, appropriately enough, the Sacrament of Reconciliation. What this country needs more than anything else is healing, forgiveness, and a fresh start. i think we’re aout to get that now. It seems strange somehow to speak of this as historical moment for Black America, because mst of the time I actually forget that Obama is black, and maybe that’s the surest sign that the change we need is already starting to happen.

  4. I was at home trying to get a lot done before leaving on vacation tomorrow. But I was checking the results on-line.

  5. More Engrish: “It is may hope that it will be that change that defines the look back on history”

    But seriously, I was glad to see the proof of what I have known was already true. Anyone can achieve anything in America. Race is not THE determining factor of one’s achievement. Still, I was crying myself to sleep over concerns about what socialistic policies might come and how those policies might continue to slowly erode American liberty and in doing so erode the aforementioned opportunity for achievement that we all so highly value. ~deep sigh~
