Many others have said it, but I too am proud today. Proud to have participated, to have voted, to have done my civic duty. To have made a difference for our country, I hope.
I’m also proud to be living in a time where a Black man with Muslim ancestry can be nominated for president of our country. Maybe next time it’ll be a woman. The US still has its problems, but what an accomplishment for a country that throughout the last one hundred years had disenfranchised Blacks and women.
We brought SillyBilly with us today, and I hope in twelve years he will be in his own little booth, doing one of the most important things a citizen can do, and in fourteen years, his sister, too.
