My blog is not the place to get political, but I just have to comment on the fact that as of today, I am proud to be American. The last 8 years as an American abroad has been made very difficult thanks to George Bush (imagine 7 years ago riding alone at night in a taxi from the airport with a taxi driver telling me off about GB's politics). Up until Monday, depending on who asked me, I shyly whispered "American" and sometimes outright lied and said "Canadian." Today I am proud to be American again.
As one French friend put it, "Tout le monde se sent américain aujourd’hui!", translation: "Everyone feels American today!"
