Sea of People, Sea of Change

Sea of People, Sea of Change

We got a ticket to the Grant Park rally tonight. I spent the whole day wavering - go or don't go? (We couldn't leave the burbs until after 9pm - was it worth it?)

Well, sitting here now at 12:15am on the Metra going back home I can say....it was worth it.

I've never seen a crowd like that. United and proud and tearful and exuberant. We got there as Obama took the stage and whisked in to hear the end of his amazing speech. I took pictures (more later) and just soaked it all in.

I will share this one with my grandchildren, that's for sure.

Wow.

I'm so glad you went. As I watched, I kept asking, "I wonder if she's there." Dh thought I was nuts. I'm glad you got to be a part of that. This is huge!
