Calling On Blue Skies

The weather today was absolutely gorgeous. It was 70 degrees with a lovely breeze. I went to class in just a long sleeve shirt, whereas last Monday I had to wear my winter coat to class. So a little weird, but I'm not complaining.

I don't really have that much to say at the moment. Life is good but hectic. This week, I have a variety of moderately-sized assignments to do, and I'm also trying to figure out what classes I'll take next quarter, which is turning into a rather overwhelming and complicated task. But college life is definitely still fun, even if it is quite hectic. I'm about to go to Tapas with my Spanish Civil War class, but I wanted to stop in to post. Mainly to talk about the main thing that's been on my mind today, which is tomorrow.

I know a lot of Americans (including a lot of people my age) have lost faith in the American government, in our political system. And to an extent, that breaks my heart, because I have not. I believe in Barack Obama.

And I know that tomorrow will be one of the most important days in my entire life.

I dare not make predictions. Even thinking about tomorrow sets loose a crazy sting of emotions in me like I haven't felt in a long time. It's like Regionals last year, except this time the outcome affects the whole world, instead of a just our team.

And I fear, I really do, but among all that fear, there is hope, trying to poke its head up inside me.

And so I sing, and I dance, and I scream "YES WE CAN!"

And I dare to call on those blue skies...

The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

Let's paint America blue tomorrow!
