Oh wow

I am sitting in a hotel room in College Station, watching CNN with tears running down my face. And all I can think of is a story I heard on NPR last week, in which they were interviewing voters in some of the swing states. And one man spoke about a text message he had received. It said

Rosa sat so Martin could walk.
Martin walked so Barack could run.
Barack runs so our children can fly.

African-American children, Latino-Americna children, Asian-American children, even my own hybrid Yankee-Texan children. All of them.

This is an amazing moment. Truly.
