Proud to be ...

Yes, my human "mom" is proud to be an American - real proud!

We (my humans and myself ) stayed up to watch the election returns on television until 6am yesterday! The returns were broadcasted here in the Netherlands on two Dutch tv networks, the BBC tv network, RAI the Italian tv network, CNN world and ZED the German tv network. We watched all of them and if we received the French network, we would have watched that too! lol Which is why I'm a day late in posting this! lol

What an election; what a result! "Yes we can" and yes we did! It was wonderful to listen to a beautiful acceptance speach by the President-elect Obama and a gracious conscession speach by Senator McCain.

If America can begin to heal its wounds and look to a hope-filled and peaceful future, then so can the rest of the world. That is our wish for everyone.
