Baby, I'm watching history and you are sleeping upstairs on your belly. In an amazing moment for our country, we have just elected the first black President of the United States, Barack Obama. He will be sworn in before your first birthday, and you will have already lived through a complete transformation in your country and in the world. We did this for you, baby. I have never been so proud of my fellow Americans before. I have hope again, and it feels amazing. Your generation will grow up in a different world. This is even better than when the Sox won the 2004 World Series, and you have no idea what that was like! This is a night of Thanksgiving, a beautiful evening full of promise and optimism. I love you.
