When I walked towards the stadium where Brayden was to play his football game on Sunday, two other teams were walking out. They had just played their play-off game, and I found myself wondering if I could tell who won based entirely on body language. The blue team didn't give much away, there weren't a ton of smiles, they were just chatting with their parents or each other, but almost every single red player had his head hung down. They walked as if defeated. I never did verify my guesses, but it seemed pretty obvious.
It got me wondering if I would be able to detect who's a republican and who's a democrat based on body language today. I know this election meant a whole lot to a whole lot of people and I imagine there will be some on Cloud Nine today and others very stressed out. I have to say that I'm very pleased that the passions surrounding this election brought record numbers to the polls. This country can't afford to be apathetic, and having an election where people cared says something about the strength of our country.
I'm also very pleased that the ads will stop, the conspiracy theories and investigations will be a little less outspoken. Perhaps in this very left-leaning community, there might even be less negativism in the letters to the editor as much of the decision-making in D.C. will be made by Democrats!
