day 6 & 7

2007 Memphis, DC pictures 493

8 years ago I remember sitting with my Dad and watching the coverage of the US elections. I also remember him feeling very very proud for Barack Obama who won. 

Today as I sit watching the coverage of the elections, and see that Obama has been declared the winner again, I’m thinking of my Dad and how happy he would’ve been.  

I’m not an  American, and I don’t really understand all the issues that they face as a nation but I love that freedom that they so unashamedly display.  The democratic process they go through every 4 years.

It really is a beautiful thing.

yesterday I was thankful for my American friends who are so passionate of their democratic process.

today I’m grateful for democracy and thankful for freedom.
