in which I am dumbfounded, and joyful

This was a big election. This was a big election for me, personally; I've never used a poll, actually. Every presidential election I've been able to vote in I've been outside of the state I was registered in; I've always voted absentee. Tramping up to the elementary school in our neighborhood to join the line of voters waiting in the rain this afternoon was absolutely thrilling.

And oh, America, you shocked me. I'm so sorry I didn't believe in you. I honestly didn't think we were big enough or good enough to see this day yet. That you did it so quickly, too; so decisively- how wonderful.

Shock

    How awesome that you were home while voting occurred, and to see this. I have to admit to be dumbfounded as well – I almost couldn’t believe it, even as I teared up watching his speech… I am so thrilled!
