But it doesn't matter. Breathe a sigh of relief, and now roll up our sleeves and start fixing this global mess we're in. And please please please keep Obama and his family safe while he gets down to the real job now, and some crazy big problems we all need to help solve. Let's hope we can.

Yep. Just because the election is over doesn't mean our work as American citizens is done. We need to keep the momentum going.

I really hope his family stays safe. I am so leery of the assassination attempts. The anxiety won't be over till Jan 20th for me.

It was amazing, I second that plea to keep him safe. We are all ignoring (maybe purposefully) that he had gave his acceptance speech behind bullet proof glass.

Great post, and an even better picture... Indiana is BLUE! Wow. I join you in wishing the Obama family safe and the country to continue their citizenry. It's going to be a long hall and we've only just begun to really work towards change.
