Sunday, Lincoln Memorial, D.C.

One of the most joyful events I can remember watching on T.V. This is a triumph of expectations, but also, I believe, a thank you to the forces of history which have brought us here to an unique moment. What was unthinkable a generation ago, a thing I did not believe could happen until I saw it unfold on election night, has actually come to pass. Although I was not an Obamaniac, I think this is a more significant historical event than the landing on the moon or the pulling down of the Berlin Wall.
