Witnessing History

I am almost overwhelmed with tonight's results.

I am overwhelmed by the thought that in my parents' lifetime, African Americans were, in many parts of the country, not able to attend the same schools, use the same restrooms or share the same water fountains.

Many will be disappointed by the result of this election... but I think it is impossible to argue that it does not demonstrate America's extraordinary ability to reinvent and improve itself from generation to generation.

That is something that we can and should be immensely proud of....

... and now the next chapter in American history begins.
