dancing in the streets

I’ve never before seen my fellow San Franciscans, or my generation, so belligerently pro-American. It was an awesome sight to behold so many people dancing in the streets, waiving and wrapping themselves in the American flag, chanting U.S.A. and the name of our next President: OBAMA.

I was moved beyond measure.

    Hi Jesse, I should have taken pictures too. We were only 15 neighbors in my tiny hamlet in France, gathering to share the joy with their one American. They had followed the campaign as closely as I had. We toasted the end of the Bush years, and just as fervently, the beginning of the Obama years. Hopes are high!

    Hi Jesse,

    Hey, not all the faces are white … looks like a good time! What a joyous reason to celebrate. I can just imagine the noise … and the laughter … and the hoots. Now the real work begins, eh.

    Nice pictures Jesse! Wish I could have been there with you guys. In Boston people went swimming in the reflection pool nearby the Obama campaign headquarters.
    In other news.. I can’t believe that Prop 8 passed.
