I’m sorry for posting this here. I know it’s not vegan related. But I am so unbelievable happy. I’ve been crying out of joy for almost 40 minutes now. (cross posted at Karmic Reverberations)

Tonight is a wonderful night for America. Barack Obama has won what is one of the most important elections in U.S. history, and has become the first African-American to become the president. He has broken the barrier, and, I hope, will not stop there. Obama has the opportunity to turn America around and make our country so much better. Good luck, President Obama. Make history.

I’ve been glued to CNN since 6pm. The moment they announced Barack Obama as the president-elect, I burst into tears. I’m still crying. I’m so proud of America and of everyone who voted today. I’m so gleefully happy that the John McCain supporters booing Obama can be ignored during McCain’s fair speech. I’m thrilled that I will be able to tell future generations that I saw history made, and that I was a part of it.

Congratulations President Obama.
