There are things

For many in my generation, being raised when we were—through the cold war and the rough times of the end of the 60s and 70s, there were things we never expected to see in our lifetime:

The fall of the Berlin wall.

The break up of the USSR.

A Woman or African-American as President.

I am again utterly speechless, as I was the first two times—especially for someone as cynical as I am, and generally down on the entire human race—every once and a while the world surprises you, and does the most amazing thing.

I am in awe of what we have achieved.

Today is a very good day to be an American.

And, to add, what old wall can we break down next?
