I am still moved to tears over the greatness of this moment. Not only because we have elected a black president but because we have elected the most gracious, eloquent, inspiring man I have ever seen. With one collective vote, we have issued a mandate to erase years of hatred and fear, excess and arrogance and to become the America that we thought we may never see: A nation, undivided, where all men truly are equal. The promise of the future seems brighter than ever and the possibilities seem endless. What a beautiful, perfect moment.
