It makes me proud to call myself an American today. I believe in Barack Obama and the administration that he will select to lead this country. I believe change is possible.
However, it makes me sad to call myself a Californian today. I am scared about what is going to happen with Proposition 8. I logged into latimes.com this morning to find that the measure is currently being approved by a margin of 52% to 48% with 95.4% of the precincts reporting. The L.A. Times is currently saying that it has passed. Read about it here. The N.Y. Times is echoing these sentiments. Read about it here.
Californians, what were you thinking?
