When I got home last night from teaching a class for BH Carroll at Legacy Church, I waited up until President-elect Obama walked out on stage with his wife and two daughters to the roaring crowd in Chicago.
Before the Obama family made their appearance, a reporter asked Oprah Winfrey her feelings about the events of the day.
She said like a giddy girl who just got asked to the prom, "Hope wins!"
I think she summed it up for all America last night.
No matter how you voted yesterday, today "Hope wins!" for those who had lost hope in their country and who thought they'd never find their place in the highest office of the land.
I am humbled to live in a country where stories like this still happen.
Tomorrow we begin the work of turning hope into action...but today, "Hope wins!"
