A new day is dawning...
....and I couldn't be happier. Regardless of one's political colours, yesterday was an historic day.
I think, for me, one of the most memorable moments was watching the faces of so many young African Americans who have had little sense of political efficacy until now, to watch their faces and know that they will forever remember this moment in history. I am betting that many of them voted for the first time, and having done so, will be voting for a lifetime. They have been empowered.
Congratulations, Americans. This Canadian looks forward to seeing in what new directions President-Elect Obama will lead your nation.
May the bright sunlight that shines down on my pasture this morning be an omen of a brighter global future.
