As a lifetime Browns and Indians fan, I'm no stranger to heartbreak. I was prepared to go home an also ran tonight. While anticipation of a thing might be wonderful, it is nothing compared to the the thing itself. Congratulations to Barak Obama and to all of us.
I am inspired and so proud of this country right now; the tears won't stop. Instead of feeling like the only hope I had was to endure and survive, I now feel like we can thrive. I believe that the personal feeling of responsibility for the people around me and the caring I receive in return is reflected in this new leader. Let there be no more talk of bootstraps and refusal to meet half way. Let's sit down together and figure this world out. And let's do it with everyone at the table.
We can make it happen...yes, we can.
