i have been mulling the events of last week over in my mind, each day, in between emails and meals. in conversations with friends and sitting at my work desk. from within, i have a desire to share the experience of mine as personal and public as it could be with 239,999 other people. it was loud and crazy, tumultuous, and humbling. but the words won't entirely formulate.
so in regards to grant park on election night, on barack obama becoming our president, on feeling empowered and hopeful for our country for the first time in my life :: i was there.
