For the past few weeks as it became more apparent that Barack Obama would win the electoral college, I started taking his election for granted. But tonight, when I turned on the television and saw that Obama had won the presidency, I was struck with the weight of history. The United States of America has (finally) elected an African-American to the presidency. I find myself in awe and drawn to prayer. I hope people will join me.
