In preparation for tonight, I made a few quick icons.
We cannot let this historical moment pass us by. As Chris Matthews said tonight, the US is the first major nation, not England or Australia or Canada or France or anywhere in this world but here in the US, that we have an African American who is in a serious position to become this nation's president and one of the world's most powerful people. This cannot be overlooked.
As a 20 year old white voter, I don't think I can even begin to grasp the full magnitude of this moment, but I'm trying. This quote made me cry:
"As an African American woman, I cannot describe in all the words of every language what this moment means to me."
