"This is our moment, this is our time..."

Check out my cover story on the election, Obama, and the gay rights issue. It has lots of pictures! Election Special Lydia Cornell Retroality.TV

"If we hadn't had these past 8 years of hell, we wouldn't have this jubilant force of peace."
- My sister Kath

That's a good reminder that no matter how bad things get life, if you hold to the good, the beautiful and the true — that will come into your life in proportion with your thoughts.

HISTORIC DAY!! BARACK OBAMA is our new president-elect. I can hear the whole world heave a sigh of relief. Now we can rebuild our esteem and bring our allies back. Thank God we took this step forward into the new peaceful era. It reminds me of Lord of the Rings -- when a new dawn of peace begins...

EVERYONE: Thank you all for contributing to this historic victory. Thank you for your courage. I think our relentless efforts - including blogging, calling, writing, thinking, praying, arguing and freaking out -- all of it was a vital part of this win. It was like the final battle in Lord of the Rings -- (although the metaphor was not as Apocalyptic) this was a battle for the soul of our nation.

This feels sort of like after 9/11 - when the whole world came together to support us.

My son came into the voting booth with me. Then the four of us, with both our sons, went over to Century City to Obama headquarters and did some phone banking. The ballroom was ready with balloons and rows of cameras. The big victory party tonight is open to everyone who worked for Obama.

I voted this morning on the way to work…I’m so excited…I’ve got that same feeling that you get early Christmas morning when you were a kid and you’d wake up at 5am…when you are certain something glorious is about ready to happen, but you still have to wait just a little bit longer before you actually have that new toy car race-track or football. can already smell the smoke from the electric car and feel the football in your hand! - Peter via email

*Tried to post this all day on election day, but couldn't post it: WATCH THE ELECTION RETURNS WITH US! We'll be at OBAMA campaign headquarters big party tonight in Century City!!
" Are we in the McCarthy era? The prank below must be payback for Sarah Palin's "Red-baiting of Obama." Nothing could be more sinister and unpatriotic than spreading hateful lies about a fellow American, U.S. Senator, Presidential candidate and Harvard Law scholar — as "palling around with terrorists" or implying he's a "communist.
