I've been to Grant Park in Chicago -- once. It was a normal fall day and it seemed like a normal, if pleasantly large, urban park.
Even watching on TV last night, I could see Grant Park was no normal place -- and Obama is no 'normal' speaker.
I've never had a President whose words moved me.... until now. I have high hopes for the next four or maybe even eight years. I, like many others, need to be moved and inspired.
We did a good thing by electing him -- now it is up to him to do good things with his office, and it is up to us to support him in the good things he wants to do.
