I woke up at about 4am due to a nasty cough, and couldn't get back to sleep, so I decided to check and see if we had a new President yet.
McCain has conceded! Barack Obama is the next President of the United States! It brings tears to my eyes, and that's not just the pain in the throat. Today, I am proud of America. At least we've done one thing right!
Sadly, there is no one around to celebrate with. I'll have to wait until morning to celebrate with classmates. It's alright, though, because today is Guy Fawkes Day/Bonfire Night, and I get to go see fireworks. I know the fireworks are really celebrating the death of a man who tried to blow up Parliament, but to me, those will be Obama fireworks. It's almost guaranteed that I'll drop a tear.
