The world just changed. I'm hard pressed to put into words exactly what it means to me, so far removed from any concrete consequences of this event.
I think it's this: today, I saw humanity make a good choice, a choice not based in fear and insularity and judgment, but in hope and life and growth. Today, humanity reached for something better, something good, and in the very act of reaching found it.
Today, I rediscovered hope; not in a man, or a nation, or a system, but in humanity.
