We went to a Democrats Abroad meeting last night. Our rep is going to a conference of all Dems Abroad committee chairs from around the world. The idea is to bring ideas of what we as Americans abroad can do for our government and what we want our government to be doing for the rest of the world. It has been a long time since I have been proud to say I am an American when traveling, but I can again hold my head high.
We watched McCain’s speech conceding the election. We were all moved yet again at his spirit and eloquence. This was followed by Obama’s acceptance speech and his stirring ability to light the fire in our soul for a new America. Then we back tracked to watch a short, humorous Obama in the video now titled “Fire it up!” Enjoy!
