A Very Strange Feeling

I feel very strange today. For the first time in a very long time, I actually feel... what is it? Pride? Yes... I feel proud. I actually agree with the President. Such a strange sensation, I almost couldn't place it.

Now if only my beloved Finnish friend, who stopped talking to me when Bush was elected the first time (even though it was not my choice), would forgive me for all my country has done.

There's so much to do, but I know it begins with me.

I felt hopeful today. Such a wonderful feeling, to be hopeful about one's president.

And you know what? This really is the best country, even with all its shortcomings. I am proud of us.
