Did you vote? I hope you did.
I walked to the polling place earlier this afternoon and stood in line outside. It’s the most beautiful day today — upper 60s, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky. The sun is bright and hopeful. There is no place I’d rather be than Georgia in the fall.
On my walk home, the sun was behind me heating up the back of my neck. I pulled my sunglasses down from my forehead over my eyes. From the distance, I could hear the kids playing in our backyard.
And then it hit me.
I JUST VOTED FOR A BLACK MAN.
I never, ever thought I’d see the day when I’d cast a ballot in a Presidential election for someone with skin the same color as my own.
I am in awe.
