My Weekend Crush

Wow. I’m still in awe of the history we all just witnessed last night. The first woman to accept a major party’s nomination for president of these United States. The first. I’m proud of us, I’m proud of her. I felt something I haven’t felt through most of this infernally long and bruising election season – joy. In fact, I kind of want to jump into that big DNC balloon pit and just bounce around in there in bliss until November when we can do this all over again. Watching the entire Democratic National Convention this week (after the fear and loathing shitshow that was the Republican National Convention), I can’t help but be struck by the differences. We, not I. Us, not them. Togetherness, not fear. Look, it’s not going to be easy. The adversary we face is an unhinged narcissist with authoritarian aspirations. But, after hearing Hillary last night, I have more hope for us. I believe in her because she believes in us. Let’s win this thing. Vote. Happy weekend, all.

I was moved to tears and I'm not even an American citizen
It was beautiful
Shatter that glass ceiling, Hillary

There were people on my street here who stayed up ALL NIGHT, literally all night, to see and hear Hillary accept that nomination. I wasn't with that little party, but they cheered around the same time I did, and we all made about as much noise as we usually do for a major soccer match :)

Hear that Hillary? Here in SA you're as big as soccer. That's way bigger than "Yuge!"

We're watching, America. Vote with your heads and make the only logical choice, please. The whole damn world will literally be better off for it. Tell me that that doesn't feel good, tell me that that is not something you wanna see happen.
