Finally, after many years of shame and discontent, I am a proud, hopeful AMERICAN.

My son, Dominick, and I have canvassed neighborhoods trying to get out the vote. We hung out at the Democratic Campaign Office and soaked up the palpable excitement. We displayed our campaign buttons, yard signs, and bumper stickers. Dominick has literally worn out his Obama t-shirt, for which he was nearly denied entrance to Laura's grandparents' home. Essentially, we lived and breathed this campaign. In return, we have renewed confidence in our country and our leaders.

I feel honored to have participated in this long, hard-fought, unprecedented, and historic election.

God Bless America!
