Can you tell I’m excited? My emotions are jumping back and forth between laughing + cheering and weeping + shaking.
I’ve been celebrating with posts on Instagram and Twitter — I mentioned how we stood outside waving American flags and banging pots and pans and it was so wonderful seeing people from our quiet little town wave and honk their horns. I said it felt like the whole world was celebrating with us. In response, I’ve heard from people all over the world who answered: We ARE cheering along with you!!
I heard from someone in Berlin that the city rang their Freedom Bell when the election was called. The Freedom Bell was a gift from Philadelphia(!) and they only ring it on German holidays. (Crying again!)
Here are a few tweets I’ve shared since the announcement.
How are you doing? Have you been celebrating? Did you break open the champagne/sparkling apple juice? Have you been calling and texting friends? Did you watch the speeches yesterday? I’d love to hear.
