So it’s finally here. The big day. A time for hope, a time for confidence, a time for change – a regime change, some would argue. As many of my friends and family go and vote for the next POTUS, I’m thinking of them and praying and hoping that the candidate chosen ushers in a new era for the USA. And if that man turns out to be half the President that President Bartlet was in the first two seasons of ‘The West Wing’, I will be a happy happy Claire (haha, way to set the bar high! Early years Jed Bartlet was the man. I’ve just spent a good half hour youtubing old clips from the show and recalling how awesome Martin Sheen’s portrayal of a flawed but amazing President was).
Some of my friends will be voting McCain. Others will be voting Obama. I’ll be hoping and praying that the choice they make will be the right one for the USA, and the world.
I’m inspired also to see the lines and queues to vote – the real enthusiasm that this election seems to have stirred. I hope that when our next general election here rolls around we can see people equal willing to use their vote and have their say.
I sign off a hopeful woman….I wonder what my next post will have to reflect upon?
