The Cloud of Witnesses were watching me today

As an African American woman voting today, I’m acutely aware of the “cloud of witnesses” that are looking down on me. Every minute that I stood in line was in honor of my ancestors who could not. For every step I took, I felt like generations of men and women were walking beside me.

It doesn’t matter who I voted for or what my challenges were with both of the major party candidates. I am more overwhelmed with the historic nature of this election and what this process means for the granny’s and granddaddy’s, the great-grandma’s and great-grandpa’s, and all of those who never believed that they would see a day such as this.

It’s truly moving.
