I'm the most cynical person I know. Now this might not be true. I've even been extremely cynical about Obama's message of hope. But right now his speech has turned that around a bit. I think I actually cried tears of relief.

I did indeed cry last night, and hugged the members of my family who were awake (the littlest one crashed). And then cried again this morning when I heard a repeat of his acceptance speech on the radio. It's a good day!

It's truly an amazing time. I teared up when I read about a 114-year-old woman, the child of slaves, voting for Obama from her convalescent home.

I woke up feeling that I needed to drink the koolaid. And I'm pretty much with you on the cynical train.

We shall see.

To me it's the difference between cowering, twitching and flinching, versus peeking up somewhat hopefully over the edge of an unknown void. To non-cynics this may not seem like a huge difference, but to me, it is.
