Watch President Obama talk about America and Americans and you start to find your footing again.
The Democratic National Convention had some moments of brilliance and let's face it, I fan girl all over the Obamas and then back again so a little Michelle and Barack and I'm thinking, "oh my goodness, look at the pretty sun coming out from behind those nasty clouds".
And then, love her or hate her: Hillary Clinton secured the nomination and history was made.
History was fucking made.
I don't care who you are or how you feel about her: we watched history be made tonight and it felt amazing.
In my lifetime man walked on the moon, a black man became president, gays got the right to marry (and serve in the military and be treated like humans) and we just saw a woman get the nomination to run for President of the United States for the Democratic party.
Jeebus. What a great day.
Did I mention Obama's speech? Where he said, "ignore those haters who talk about storm clouds and let's look at that pretty sun together."
Well he might have said it a little differently but that's what I heard.
What a pretty sun. I think I'll walk in the light for a while.
