This morning, my little one, privy to my hours of NPR listening, is happily padding around the downstairs of our house saying "Barack Obama, Barack Obama." It is a chorus finding a global voice.
Obama said, "If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."
McCain said, "I call on all Americans...to believe, always, in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here."
And Time has compiled the thoughts of world leaders like Archbishop Desmond Tutu and French President Nicholas Sarkozy on this historic win.
Indeed, everyone, it seems, has something to say on the dawn of this new day. And you, Mamas? What do you have to say?
