I am a proud American
My family is full of these things: Irish, English, German, Spanish, Hawaiian, Chinese, Black, White, Jew, Christian, Catholic, atheist, young, old, gay, straight, tall, short.
My America is full of these things too and much more.
I know who I voted for. But I really don't care who any one individual voted for. I care more that you voted.
We don't know the outcome yet. But, no matter the result, today's election shows to me that millions of Americans are ready to begin to move away from our racist legacy.
As Michelle Obama correctly said, and was so unfairly jumped on for saying, I have never been so proud to be an American.
