Tears of joy as the final states were called and the President was named tonight’s winner:
…and a quick video once I gathered myself a bit:
I want to thank everyone who worked on this election for all of their hard work. From my family to yours…my deepest thank you. From our hearts.
My children have had the privilege of seeing this election from the inside. They were at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. They voted with me. They have watched endless hours of news, heard me speak on the matter, heard their Dad talk about it and all the issues involved.
If anything else has been learned from all from all of this, it has been that children are smart and they cut to chase. As my son said today, “Obama has to win, because Romney has only been for some people while the President has been for EVERYONE.”
Tonight it seems America agreed with my nine-year old. Now let’s hope everyone can come together and find common ground to move FORWARD.
