My dad knows me well enough that on Saturday evening he presented me with a historic magazine cover.
I have a tendency; ok wrong phrase, I enjoy collecting major headlines from any newspaper or magazine that prints something major. As I looked through some of the headlines in my box, I saw: the Twin Towers, the Pope, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Vince Young (to name a few). Many of these headlines brought back many memories of where I was and how I felt when I learned about these historic moments and figures.
I share this with you today because no matter whom I voted for, (yes, I voted for McCain, 1 of the 7 people in Travis County) this is a historic moment. At first glance of the Austin American Statesman, I was not going to buy an ugly blue announcement about Obama (if you didn’t see it, you aren’t missing anything). I ended up with the Wall Street Journal (very classy job) and this copy of People. I will put these away with my other historic papers and look back on them sometime in the near future and remember the election of 2008.
It should be an interesting 4 years and I am looking forward to seeing how Obama handles the job.
